The Music of Les Misérables 2024
Concert musicals are always something very special, not least because the people on stage are the focus here and neither sets nor other effects distract from them. This has been achieved quite brilliantly in "The Music of Les Misérables", in no small part because of the exceptionally well chosen cast.
The show comes most alive when these strong-voiced soloists enter the stage together with the choir. This is especially true of the "Les-Mis" star soloists Richard Munday and Chloe Taylor as well as Chris Green and Julie Lund!
The choir and orchestra under the direction of Stephen Ellery let these great vocal performances shine additionally with wonderful sounds.
"Les Misérables" by Boublil/Schönberg is the longest-running musical in the world. Hardly any other musical has this magic of moving and sensitive melodies and this overarching dramaturgy that no one can escape. These certainly include "I Dreamed a Dream", "One Day More", "Do you Hear the People Sing" and "On My Own".
A new song was composed specifically for Hugh Jackman for the 2012 global hit film. "Suddenly" was nominated for an Oscar as the best film song of the year and of course it cannot be missing from this extraordinary concert! Original scenes from this film will be shown on the big screen at this concert - in cooperation with Universal Pictures.
