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 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.
Such emotion in "Til I Hear You Sing"!!!! Erik's voice, especially " I ache down to the core....."
So look with your heart, and not with your eyes, the heart understands, the heart never lies........ . . . <3 I love her voice!!!
Now it would be so cool if the boy who plays Gustave eventually went on to play The Phantom!!!!? ? ? ? ! ? ? ? Yesss!!! This must happen!!!!

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 absolutly live this song. Ramin is a phenomenal phantom. I love him :). i dont think anyone likes him more than me lol. Love never dies is the best sequal for phantom of the opera.and Listening to beneath a moonless sky gives me chills. <3<3
Nobody... I REPEAT NOBODY... Loves Phantom Of the Opera and Love Never Dies more than I do! After watching the 25th Anniversary of Phantom on Netflix, it was a new phase for me. I can reach every note, thanks to my constant watching and practicing. Then I watched Love Never Dies last night after Listening to its music on Pandora, and cried horribly at the end! Still love it!!!!
sgray08 Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
Rierra
OMG this is amazing I hear Ramin sing and I'm just all.... Oh my god
Ramin is just an excellent Phantom
alg9909

Ramin is just too perfect!!!
Can I clear the ais Christine's father's name was Charles. And in the book Phantom of Manhatten the sequel book Gustave's name was her father's but they changed it in the musical. The Phantom of the Opera motion picture her fathers name was Gustave I found that and some part of the movie a mistake cause spoiler, Christine died at twenty-six not sixty some. And in the old original Phantom of the Opera book it said Christine's dad name was Charles.
