Product Description

Product Description

Filmed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations of the musical 'Les Misérables', this theatrical extravaganza features over 250 performers, including many of the most popular actors ever to have appeared in the 'Les Misérables' company. The cast includes Colm Wilkinson, Ruthie Henshall, Alun Armstrong, Michael Ball and Judy Kuhn.

From Amazon.co.uk

The 10th-anniversary-concert video of the international musical sensation Les Misérables might be the best thing to appease fans until a full-fledged movie comes along. Or it might be even better, as feature films are often subject to extra musical casting considerations and this 1995 dream cast is superb. Reprising their roles from the original London company are Colm Wilkinson (Valjean), Michael Ball (Marius) and Alun Armstrong (Thenardier). From Broadway come Judy Kuhn (Cosette), Lea Salonga (Eponine) and Michael Maguire (Enjolras); from a later London production comes Ruthie Henshall (Fantine); and from Australia comes Philip Quast (Javert).

Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's score vividly captures the passion of Victor Hugo's epic tale of pre-Revolutionary France, combining tear-jerking ballads ("I Dreamed a Dream", "Bring Him Home") and rousing anthems ("Do You Hear the People Sing"). The format of this concert is closer to that of a dramatic cantata rather than a fully staged production; the singers stand at their microphones with an orchestra and chorus behind them, but they do wear costumes and participate in some movement. At certain points, such as the climax of the barricade scene, the video switches to action from a stage production. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra sounds great, and it can be thrilling when 200 choristers (dressed in logo T-shirts) rise to their feet for a full-company number such as "One Day More". Also, subtitles provide date and scene information and help move the story along.

This 147-minute version contains footage not seen before, most notably the encore in which a progression of 17 actors who have played Valjean around the world share "Do You Hear the People Sing?" Each sings a line in his native language, a testament to the enduring power of this show to audiences everywhere.--David Horiuchi, Amazon.com

When they write "The Dream Cast" on the box, they're not kidding! The performers in this version of Les Miz are exactly how you'd picture the characters. Although this is purely a concert, and not a performance, Colm Wlikinson et al. do their best to bring the characters to life, without props, with the restrictions imposed by the microphones, but still with such emotion and realism. The finale to this version is also a treat - several minutes of encores featuring several Valjeans from all over the world performing "Do you hear the people sing?" in their own native tongues - an experiance not to be missed. Although you can never replace the atmosphere you get when you go to see the musical at the theatre, this DVD comes very close to it, especially with the optional on-screen lyrics. This is a must for any Les Miz fan, or even if you're just into musicals. Don't even think about waiting "One Day More!"

I originally had the video of this concert, which included footage of Cameron Mackintosh, Trevor Nunn, John Caird, Alain Boublil and Jean-Michelle Schoenberg. I was surprised to find this missing from the DVD version. I was also disappointed to find that only the original stereo soundtrack was included and it had not been re-mixed to make full use of the surround capabilities of the medium. Finally, I remain puzzled by the missing middle 45 seconds of "Turning" which appeared on the original radio broadcast of the concert, but not on the TV, video or DVD versions. As the sound was obviously captured, I am surprised they couldn't edit in some footage from the real show if they lost camera picture for a while when recording the concert. Bcause it is an indoor performance, the picture quality is quite poor on video, but is much improved on the DVD version. If you haven't seen it, get it. It remains a remarkable experience, despite the above comments. How I wish I could have been there. Maybe in 2005!

An amazing and brilliant DVD of the 10th Anniversary Concert. I bought it to help me learn my songs for my school play, but I can't stop watching it, and I know the lyrics to pretty much the entire thing already!
I do warn you. As it says on the box "In Concert", it means that! So don't expect to see the actual West-End production of it, because this is simply the actors. However, the actors/singers are wearing the costumes, and sing it better than any production you will have ever seen.
But it's well worth the money, and I advise you get the DVD if you have a DVD player because the picture and sound quality is superb, and you wouldn't want to detract from that from a poor quality VHS.

I didn't really know what to expect when this live concert started. It is much better than an ordinary videoed stage performance of a musical as there are no distractions from the acting, stage props, stunts etc. It is pure, undiluted, music with a carefully chosen cast, each member being perfectly selected for voice and appearance, backed up by an excellent choir and the Philharmonia orchestra. In a way, it has turned a musical into opera. For sheer entertainment value, I cannot recommend this version too highly, despite its low price: buy it.

This show which contains all the main songs and scenes from the Les Miserables west end show is an extravoganza of brilliance.! I could not fault the beautiful singing of any of the cast aptly named "the dream cast" but was especially blown away by the performance of Philip Quast as the steely yet vulnerable Inspector Javert. His voice as he sang "stars" was so powerful that it reduced me to tears and his stage presence was magnificent. Congratulations also to Michael Ball who sang "empty chairs at empty tables" with guts and emotion. I also loved Ruthie Henshall as Fantine. What an amazing voice she has! And the Thenardier's were so funny and what a brilliant delivery of those humourous songs, particularly by Alan Armstrong who is such a versatile actor! This video is an absolute MUST to any musical lover's collection. It will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. The power and emotion of the singing will make the hairs on your neck stand up throughout the performance. There was no lessening of dramatic impact because of the lack of scenery or props. Those brilliant actors brought it to life on a bare stage just by using their exquisite talent and i for one, felt transported to the seedy world of 19th century paris with all its poverty and degredation. Totally absorbing and absolutely fabulous!!!

Absolutely amazing! fantastic performances by the leading roles and by the chorus. Lea Salonga once again immediately captures you with her emotional and powerful performance as Eponine, especially when she sings On my own, she definately shines once again! Ruthie Henshall with her unique sound as Fantine. Alun Armstrong and Jenny Galloway with their hilarious comedy performances as The Thenardiers,amazing! and ofcourse Colm Wilkonson performing Jean Val Jean with such power in his voice it is unbelievable what notes he hits, simply fantastic! A great and entertaining display of the best talent in the world! But Lea Salonga gets the standing ovation by me, shes fabulous!!!!
