Many other reviewers have praised the O2 cast, which included the returning 1985 cast. So let me emphasise the other glories of this production. Matt Kinley's breathtaking design loses the revolving stage, and references the art of novelist Victor Hugo (didn't know he was painterly? Neither did I.). Strong echoes, also, of misty Turner and Delacroix - all moody revolutionary tableaux, dramatically spotlit (Paule Constable, lighting). Factories, churches, windows, marvellous back-projections. And a STUNNING "coup-de-theatre" for Javert's ending.
Musically, the new orchestrations, by Chris Jahnke, Stephen Metcalfe & Stephen Brooker, add colour, depth, intensity and subtlety. They bring out the cleverness as well as lyricism of the score. And the new orchestrations fully support the lyrics, e.g., "With their voices soft as thunder" followed by an ominous, barely perceptible rolling drum (yup, thunder alright . . .) that chills you.
The singing and acting at the O2 was top-notch. Alfie Boe's operatic voice goes effortlessly to the centre of all the "money" notes, perhaps therefore not as intense as the musical-theatre singers, but with undeniable warmth. And his "Bring Me Home" was perfect. The ageless Jenny Galloway rolled back the years as Madame T., ("or I'll forget to be nice!Read more ›
Firstly, Jean Valjean himself. Alfie Boe is an amazing singer and he is truly virtuosic in his vocalisations here. I am still reserved when reviewing the acting part as when he enters a scene he always looks like he is looking at a ghost with that startled look in his eyes. He also looks like he is about to cry alot which is the audience's job. Then again, it is a concert. Nonetheless, excellently sung. However, the faster recitiative sections which dominate the opening thirty minutes can become convoluted as the operatic tenor voice Boe adopts sometimes melds together some of the diction. Bring Him Home is truly outstanding though and is probably the stand-out performance.
Norm Lewis is competent as Javert and certainly looks the part. He has a beautiful voice but there is something missing from his version of Stars. You just don't get that same tingling feeling as when you hear Philip Quast sing it. However, his suicide scene is outstanding and his scrappings with Valjean and the revolutionaries. Ramin Karimloo is one of my favourite singers and I admired his voice since seeing him live in Love Never Dies. Truly outstanding and a belter whilst seeming completely effortless. He really shines through when he is singing and is a standout performer.
Katie Hall is rather indifferent as Cosette although that is not her fault.Read more ›
Congratulations to everyone involved in Sundays performance. You all made many thousands of people very happy. We have ordered the DVD and look forward to "re-living the moment".
