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.
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

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.
