Andrew Lloyd Webber today confirmed future plans for Love Never Dies, the continuation of The Phantom of the Opera.
“I am delighted to confirm that following a successful sing-through of the complete score of “Love Never Dies” (the sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera”) in the lead-up to Christmas, I have decided to greenlight the production. Of course you never can tell how things will turn out, but we are exploring the idea of opening the show in the UK, America and the Far East in the autumn of 2009. This is a very exciting idea but obviously we have to see that it is logistically possible.
As reported in today’s edition of the “The Times” I can also confirm that “Love Never Dies” is set in America’s Coney Island approximately ten years after the beginning of the original story. In those days Coney Island was one of the wonders of the world, far eclipsing the excesses of Las Vegas today. The story continues the tale of the Phantom, Raoul, Christine, Madame Giry and Meg.”
