Have you got tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera at Curve? Great news, now you’ll be able to follow it with the spellbinding sequel, Love Never Dies, which will open its UK tour at Curve on Saturday 26 September.
Following a sell out North American tour, Love Never Dies will embark on its first ever UK outing this autumn. The show has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Glenn Slater, book by Ben Elton, and is based on The Phantom of Manhattan by Frederick Forsyth.
So what can you expect from the story?
The year is 1907. It is 10 years after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House and the Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak shows of Coney Island. In this new, electrically charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar, but he has never stopped yearning for his one true love and musical protégée, Christine Daaé.
Now one of the world’s finest sopranos, Christine accepts an invitation to travel from Paris to New York to perform at a renowned opera house. Christine’s marriage to Raoul is suffering at the hands of his drinking and gambling and they desperately need the financial rewards that America can give them.
In a final bid to win back Christine’s love, The Phantom lures her, Raoul, and their young son Gustave, from Manhattan to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island… not knowing what is in store for them….
Tickets for Love Never Dies at Curve will go on general sale on Friday 31 January at midday.
