The greatest love story of all time continues in Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. With music by Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Glenn Slater, additional lyrics are by Charles Hart, and the book is by Lloyd Webber and Ben Elton, with additional material by Slater and Frederick Forsyth.

Love Never Dies made its world premiere in the West End in 2010; the following year an Australian production opened at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre, directed by Simon Phillips. It later transferred to Sydney’s Capitol Theatre. Subsequent productions have been seen in Copenhagen, Vienna, Tokyo and Hamburg. A North American touring version is scheduled for the 2017–2018 season.

The year is 1907. It is 10 years after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House and the Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love—Christine Daaé. Now one of the world’s finest sopranos, Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul. So, it is with excitement she accepts an invitation to travel to New York and perform at a renowned opera house. In a final bid to win back her love, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan; to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island…not knowing what is in store for them…

Be transported to New York’s playground Coney Island where the masked phantom has been hiding amongst the freaks and sideshows for 10 long years, yearning for his one true love and musical protégée, Christine Daaé. Lured by the bright lights and financial rewards of Coney, Christine and her family flee Manhattan to perform on stage for one last time, but Christine soon discovers the true identity of her mysterious impresario and that all is not what it seems.
