New Photos, Clips From Danish LOVE NEVER DIESLOVE NEVER DIES, Andrew Lloyd Webber's controversial stage sequel to the world's most successful entertainment of all time THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, has made its way to Denmark and a slew of photos and clips from the completely new production have surfaced.

Taking place ten years after the events of the original, LOVE NEVER DIES is primarily set in New York City during the early twentieth century and concerns itself with the goings-on at Coney Island and the mysterious impressario running the freak shows and frivolous entertainments there, Mr. Y.

The Danish production is directed by Daniel Bohr and is presented in Norwegian (translation of Glenn Slater's book and lyrics by Karen Hoffmann). The production began performances in October of last year and is currently booking through the end of this month, though a further extension is expected.

LOVE NEVER DIES plays in Copenhagen at the Det Ny Teater, starring Louise Fribo as Christine.

The new production of LOVE NEVER DIES in Denmark is the third major rehaul of the show following its 2010 West End bow. While up and running in the UK, post-opening, the Jack O'Brien-directed original went through many changes before ultimately closing at a loss. Following that, acclaimed director Simon Phillips staged a spectacular and much more visually compelling iteration of the show in Australia. The Australian version was subsequently filmed and then shown in movie theaters worldwide and released on DVD and Blu-ray last year.
