A Conversation for 'Les Miserables' by Victor Hugo

The Musical

The musical is on video. It isn't the whole musical, since it is shortened, and it is more like a concert. It is called "Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Concert" or "Les Miserables - The Dream Cast". It was recorded in 1995 in the Royal Albert Hall. It is quite good! Excellent singers! (Especially that handsome Michael Ball!)

Here is the cast:
Jean Valjean - Colm Wilkinson
Javert - Philip Quast
Fantine - Ruthie Henshall
Marius Pontmercy - Michael Ball
And Jenny Galloway, Alun Armstrong, Lea Salonga, Michael Maguire, Judy Kuhn, Anthony Criviello and many more!

There is also a video called 'Les Miserables: Stage by Stage'
which is similar to a behind the stages 'Making of' production.

And then there is the Complete Symphonic Recording. This is an audio CD-set containing the complete performance. Every note, every word. And since every word of the performance is sung, the only aspect of the production you are missing is the visual.
