Artist: Original Cast
Description:
Principal cast: Colm Wilkinson (Valjean); Philip Quast (Javert); Ruthie Henshall (Fantine); Jenny Galloway (Mme Thenardier); Alun Armstrong (Thenardier); Lea Salonga (Eponine); Michael Ball (Marius); Michael Maguire (Enjolras); Judy Kuhn (Cosette); Anthony Crivello (Grantaire); Adam Searles (Gavroche); Hannah Chick (Young Cosette). Performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - David Charles Abell, conductor. Recorded live at The Royal Albert Hall, London, England on October 8, 1995. Includes liner notes by Alan Boublil, Claude-Michel Schonberg, Cameron Mackintosh, Edward Behr, Herbert Kretzmer, Trevor Nunn, and John Caird. Originally conceived as a simple recording production, Les Miserables evolved quickly into one of the premiere theater events of the 1980s. Theatrically on par with Phantom of the Opera, Les Mis is drawn from the Victor Hugo novel of the same name. The story chronicles the life of Jean Valjean, a simple Frenchman arrested as a youth for stealing a loaf of bread. After serving five years for that crime, as well as an additional 14 for attempted escape, Valjean is released on parole. Upon changing his name and eluding his parole officer, he becomes the surrogate father of a young girl and a Mayor as the French Revolution sets in. As the war rages, he finds that he cannot change the man he is. Les Miserables is typical of theater in the '80s, with extravagant effects and large, full-cast numbers. The beautiful score is full of emotion and humor, including such memorable and noteworthy songs as "Look Down," "Do You Hear the People Sing?," "Bring Him Home," "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables," and the ubiquitous "On My Own." In 1995, a tenth anniversary concert was performed at Royal Albert Hall, combining members of the original cast, including Colm Wilkinson and Michael Ball, as well as Lea Salonga (the original Kim from Miss Saigon). Fully enjoyable, it may not be the best compilation of the music available, but it is definitely a worthwhile liste...

  • Les Mis

    I n concert is still one of the most moving recordings of the show . It ran on Bway for years and I saw it 5 times. Came back 2 years ago for a brief run and I fell in love with it all over again.

  • Wonderful!

    This music touches the soul. There is a line in one of the later songs that makes the whole album worth listening to..."To love another person is to touch the Face of God!" It's powerful music! I totally recommend it, even if you haven't seen the play!

  • Les Miserables: 10th Anniverasary concert

    Wow! This is not your average concert. The producers brought the original cast together backed by a 200+ member chorus. Magnificent voices, wonderful performances, and of course those haunting lyrics. Get comfortable in your favorite chair or sofa, turn the lights off, and keep the hankies close. Travel to a time of great suffering and even greater courage. A must own for all who saw the play.

  • Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Dream Cast

    This is a replacement CD, to one that was misplaced. My husband and I sing all the songs and NEVER tire of listening to it. We also have the DVD which we watch every few months. The story is timeless, moving and the music is beautiful. The words tell it all. I will caution parents, it is not a story for children. The story starts during the French Revolution and continues for over 30 years.
