Love Never Dies (Original Cast Recording)

Andrew Lloyd Webber (b. 1948) is the most successful composer of musicals of his generation and also a breaker of molds for the type. His predecessors were, for the most part, American: New York-based songwriters steeped in Broadway tradition. Lloyd Webber saw his share of shows as a child, too, but he was born in London, the son of William Lloyd Webber, Director of the London College of Music, and was trained at the Royal Academy of Music, hardly the sort of place where you'd be likely to hear Oklahoma!

Nevertheless, Lloyd Webber hooked up with lyricist Tim Rice, and the two began work on what would be a typical project for them, a musical based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. Titled Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, it brought in a strong rock & roll influence. After writing a second unproduced musical, the two hit on the idea of writing a musical based on the life of Jesus Christ from the point of view of Judas (not the sort of idea likely to occur to a Broadway composer) and, again, imbued with rock. Unable to finance a stage version, Lloyd Webber and Rice did manage to record their show, and Jesus Christ Superstar went on to sales in the millions all over the world. The hit musical version followed.

Lloyd Webber and Rice then split, with the composer writing film scores and working on an abortive musical with playwright Alan Ayckbourne (Jeeves), after which Rice returned with another audacious idea: a musical based on the life of Argentine dictator (or dictator's wife, depending on how you look at it) Eva Peron. Evita (1976) repeated the pattern of Jesus Christ Superstar, with its hit record album followed by a successful theatrical run in the West End and then on Broadway.

The Lloyd Webber-Rice partnership, having proved itself again, was severed (Rice went on to write Chess), and Lloyd Webber next wrote a musical revue based on T.S. Eliot's whimsical poems about Cats (1981). This time, the show came before the album, and it's still running. By this time, Lloyd Webber had largely abandoned the rock elements of his work in favor of what critics found a pastiche style that borrowed from classical and opera sources. He had also become a brand name (and a corporation, the Really Useful Company) that assured at least a modest success for subsequent shows, though critics were often unimpressed with his efforts.

Downgrading the status of his lyricists, Lloyd Webber went on to a series of successful shows (Song and Dance, Starlight Express) before scoring another long- (and still-) running hit in 1987 (1988 in New York) with a musical adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera. Aspects of Love (1989-1990) was less successful, however. Lloyd Webber debuted a musical adaptation of the Billy Wilder film Sunset Boulevard in the early '90s, and it proved to be one of his rare disappointments, failing to earn either good reviews or healthy ticket sales. In 1996, Alan Parker adapted Evita for the screen; Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice contributed a new song, "You Must Love Me," to the production, which starred Madonna. "You Must Love Me" won the Best Original Song award at the 1997 Academy Awards. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Ramin and Ben Lewis are both really good for the Phantom.... but I do have to agree that Ramin is better in the first and Ben Lewis in the sequel...... . and of course Sierra Boggess is absolutely amazing in both, but I also loved Anna O'Byrne :)

I LOVE Andrew he's so awesome- if only I could star in a main role
AMAZINGGGGG! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
The phantom of the opera and love never dies are my favorite musicals ever. They are so beautiful and moving. AND THE PHANTOMS VOICE IS JUST UGH SO GREAT
Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess are so amazing and they will always be my favorite duet for Phantom of The Opera. Ramin Karimloo is so mysterious and alluring. And Sierra has this radiant innocence and charm.
The Australian version cleaned it up nicely, but I'm in love with both and I think ramin and Sierra need to try again with it with the new version cause like it would just be perf
Don't read this cause it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day if your life. Now you started reading this so don't stop. If you don't post this in two days you will die. Post this song on five songs in 143 minutes and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary because it actually works.
Let it go
When Ramin sings I feel like my my soul is on fire. When he carries out befooooooooo o o o o o r e , I close my eyes and I think that my soul starts to soar with the music of the night. Ben Lewis on the other hand can not act at all and is not half as good as ramin. He is so passionate when he sings it makes me want to cry.
Poto and lnd is my life! Follow for a follow
I love you Ramin!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
Ramin is so good, but I like better in the first one and Ben Lewis with the second, sequal.
I absolutely love the Australian version, don't get me wrong I love Ramin and Sierra but they don't have the depth of it for love never dies. Although they are my favorite poto the 25th version that they played in was amazing especially Ramin. He is awesome.

musagirl001
When the phantom sings of the performance, my eyes close and my heart melts. It is just so beautiful I can't help but feel as if it's me in front of the crowd.
It never does truly die as long as it was truly love! Learn a lesson from Christine's mistakes people!
It's ten years later, and Christine has a son named Gustave but it's not raouls son, even though he thinks it is, it's the phantom. Apparentally , they have always loved each other.

I'm so confused!!

So did Christine fall in love with the "Angel of Music"? Or what? I thought that she loved Raul.
I've been a Phantom phan for 18 years. I love the story and music so much. I'd choose Erik, of course. Boo on Raoul. :P
