Love Never Dies…Well, Actually, It Does

Spoilers~

The other half of my soul, Maria, gets me addicted to so many awesome things: one of them being The Phantom of the Opera: Love Never Dies. God, the music is absolutely gorgeous, and it’s interesting how Andrew Lloyd Webber altered the opera-esque tone of the songs to something…more. I’m no music buff, so I really don’t know the terminology for this kind of stuff, but the instruments portray the the scenes and characters so well. And FINALLY we get some hot Phantom/Christine action! I mean, come on, there’s a song about them making love. It doesn’t get much better than that. And Christine finally grows some backbone instead of acting like a delirious schoolgirl. The only downside to all this is the horrid ending…well, it’s not too bad, but I definitely don’t like it.

Here’s a quick summary of it, if you’re interested:

Ten years after the events at the Paris Opera, The Phantom, the creator and owner of Phantasma (Coney Island) is tortured by the absence of Christine and longs to hear her again. He sends her an invitation to Coney Island to make her American debut. She accepts without knowing the sender and comes with her husband Raoul (Vicount de Chagny) and her son (Gustave). But secrets are unveiled, because apparently Christine had a tryst with the Phantom, intent on staying with him rather than Raul. The Phantom, however, afraid of the morning after, ran away to America with Madam Giry and Meg. It is now that Christine sees him once more that the question of Gustave’s parentage comes into question, as does Christine’s ultimate love.

Oh, how I adore Ramin’s Phantom. He just portrays him so well, and the essence of chemistry between him and Sierra is BAM!
