Love Never Dies opened at the Capitol Theatre, Sydney last week to a standing ovation and despite minor technical hiccups during the opening show (which many didn’t notice until an announcement was made), this continuing story of The Phantom Of The Opera has been hailed a success in Sydney.

In her recent review,’s Cassie Tongue hailed the show as “lush and darkly romantic”.

“The Australian, all-new production of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies triumphs in the power of its creative and production team”, she said.

This new video includes audience reactions from opening night and some footage from the media calls of Love Never Dies.
