Love Never Dies is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sequel to The Phantom of the Opera and it’s coming to TPAC this summer. The show will make its Nashville premiere at Andrew Jackson Hall for one week from June 19 through June 24.
The show is set in 1907, 10 years after The Phantom disappeared from the Paris Opera House. He escaped to a new life in New York, where he lives on Coney Island. It’s a whole new world for him and his music is finally thriving. But, he does still miss his true love and musical protégée, Christine Daaé. She’s now one of the world’s finest sopranos and she accepts an invitation to play at an opera house in New York. It’s then that The Phantom lures her, her husband and their young son to Coney Island. They have no idea what’s in store for them when they arrive.
“Ever since Andrew Lloyd Webber penned ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ we have longed to know what happens to The Phantom and these much beloved characters after the show,” Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC president and chief executive officer, says. “Love Never Dies answers our questions with all the trademarks of a Lloyd Webber production, including beautiful costumes and visually stunning sets, with a story that haunts you long after the curtain comes down.”
This time around, it’s a new touring production, directed by Simon Phillips with new set and costume designs by Gabriela Tylesova. Astaire Award-winner Graeme Murphy choreographed the performance, Nick Schlieper designed the lighting and Mick Potter did the sound design. The show has been given a complete makeover for productions and Webber knew this was truly something special.
“I have the great joy of being able to say that I think this production is probably the finest one I could ever, ever hope for,” he gushes.
