Mid-Week Music

"Let hopes pass, let dreams pass, let them die! Without you what are they for? My broken soul can't be alive nor whole, 'til I hear you sing once more."

'Til I Hear You Sing, is the opening number from the reworked production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Love Never Dies' which made its debut in Australia. Love Never Dies is the sequel to the 'Phantom of the Opera' and picks up 10 years after the original piece finished, with the Phantom now hiding in Coney Island. He lures his love Christine to Coney Island with the carnival freaks and oddities, including familiar faces Meg and Madame Giry. I'd say it's very much the Moulin Rouge of the decade as a piece.

And for those of you who either cannot get to Sydney to see this spectacular show in person, or aren't willing to fork out a reasonable sum of money for a ticket, a DVD of the show filmed in Melbourne last year has just been released. It is honestly just like being there watching the show, if not better as it was done in a filmic fashion. So much more detail is emphasised, particularly the characters emotions but more so the set and costume designs, added bonus!
