The much-anticipated follow-up to The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies Durham takes the story of Christine, Raoul and The Phantom to Coney Island, while still retaining the gritty feel and haunting music that exemplified the original production. As with Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies features music by the great Andrew Lloyd Webber. Tony-nominated Glenn Slater wrote the play's lyrics, and Slater and Lloyd Webber teamed up with Frederick Forsyth and Ben Elton to write the book.
Love Never Dies received nominations for several Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical.
Love Never Dies Durham background
The stage version of The Phantom of the Opera found inspiration from a novel by Gaston Leroux. Nearly a century later, Frederick Forsyth chose to continue the story with the book, The Phantom of Manhattan. The sequel initially aimed to provide a tribute to the original, but was also a satire reflecting works such as The Flashman Papers by George MacDonald Fraser.
Love Never Dies Durham storyline
Love Never Dies Durham begins by introducing audience members to the Phantasma -- an amusement park on Coney Island. Madame Giry manages the business and choreographs its burlesque show, in which her daughter Meg performs. Eventually, viewers learn that the Phantom is the true mastermind behind Phantasma. The Phantom still pines for Christine Daae, much to the annoyance of the Giry family. He invites her to perform at Phantasma, and several months later, she appears on Coney Island with her husband (Raoul) and son (Gustave). Christine eventually reveals that the Phantom is Gustave's biological father. Following an emotional performance at Phantasma, Christine finds her son in danger from the jealous Meg, who accidentally shoots her nemesis. The production ends on a heartbreaking, yet beautiful, note.
