Its not a translation, but a list of how many stars the different newspapers gave the show :-)

Oh. Oh. My comment was not directed at what you posted. I was referring to a long, incomprehensible post, which appeared twice, that looked as it was supposed to be a translation. It has been removed.

You wouldn't have links for those reviews, would you? I found  the Berlingske one and the one other, but didn't have time or the luck to find the rest.

The removed post was a spam advert which was posted on lots of different threads

Small parts of the reviews can be seen here: http://www.detnyteat...forestillingen/
If you would like the full reviews you can visit the papers homepages. The Danish word for review is "anmeldelse" and can be found in the papers' culture ("kultur") sections. :-)

No surprises the criticisms hit at the basic material (PLOT!) again. This show just doesn't work using the characters from a completely different show and forcing the two together such that they become unrecognisable and the majesty of the original is reduced to the pedestrian here is never going to set the world alight.

I'm a little saddened the wonderful Tomas A. Kofod is playing the lead part in this, if only because this show goes completely against his interpretation of the character of Raoul in the original, which I had the great pleasure of seeing him play a few years ago at the same theatre and he is by far one of the best Raouls to have emerged during the history of the show. But his interpretation of the Vicomte as truly, deeply, madly in love with Christine to a very selfless extent really doesn't gel with how this character is mutilated in this show. It'd be interested to know what he thinks of how that character has been handled by this show. I suppose he has to eat, though.

Just found this one on YouTube from the Danish "Olivier"-Award show called "Reumert", in which Love Never Dies won "Best Music Theatre" Louise Fribo singing "Love Never Dies"

Love Never Dies makes it German-language premier as a concert in October this year in Wien with Drew Sarich as The Phantom - I am extremely jealous that they have Sarich as Phantom! It's for 8 performances only! They're doing it as a direct follow on from their Phantom of the Opera concert that happened last year.
