Pity about Ruthie Henshall...,
This review is from: Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Concert At The Royal Albert Hall (2 Disc Collector's Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
I was given this for Christmas, having owned (and worn out!) the video version. The sound and vision quality is excellent, far better than the video, and the accompanying bonus disk is fascinating.
The performances generally are superb of course, though I still wonder why Ruthie Henshall was chosen for this anniversary event. Her voice and performance is totally lacking in finesse, in marked comparison to the other cast members.
Though I'm not a fan of his generally, (I don't care for his usual repetoire)I thought Michael Ball's performance was outstanding, though my personal favourite has to be Philip Quast, whose voice is utterly mesmeric.
