4.0 out of 5 stars Far From Miserable - Well Maybe Except For Nick!, 4 Dec 2010
This review is from: Les Miserables - 25th Anniversary [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Well just watched the Blu-ray version and generally enjoyed the concert; the orchestration and staging were particularly great. The ambience and theatrical relevance of the evening was nicely captured. All the performances probably apart from Nick Jonas were generally very good in what was essentially a concert setting in a large arena. We didn't know who Nick Jonas was while watching the DVD and kept wondering who this guy was with the "out of sync" emotions to the material, and clearly not to the standard of the other performers. A bit of research however revealed all. The Javert was a bit ordinary and didn't quite bring the spine tingling, hairs on end, impact of Philip Quast singing Stars, in my opinion the best song in the show. The 4 Valjeans together in the finale was great, the speech by Cameron was cheesy, and all the youth trailing in at the end was probably superfluous. The verbal acknowledgement of the school performances would have been enough. The sound quality of the Blu-ray was very good but the picture quality was variable with digital "processing effects" dominating some scenes, exaggerated by the stage lighting. But overall a must to buy for the fans, and for others, worth renting for the experience.
