Les Misérables: 25th Anniversary Concert

Les Misérables: 25th Anniversary Concert

Les Misérables is one of the best musicals ever. From London's O2 Arena in October 2010, the 25th Anniversary Concert has a great cast with all wonderful performances. The show has a very big chorus and three video screens. The stage is also used for some sets. Les Misérables is set in 1815 in France, and follows the stories of Jean Valjean (who is first shown being released from imprisonment after serving 19 years) and many other characters in their struggle for redemption and revolution. Some of my favorite songs are "Prologue: Work Song", "Prologue: What Have I Done?", "I Dreamed a Dream", "The Confrontation", "Castle on a Cloud", and "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables". The original 1985 cast is also here. They are brought on stage after the show ends and perform many songs with the current cast.
