This is by far one of the most historic and entertaining performances of Les Mis. It doesn't quite match seeing it for real on stage, but this is the next best thing since it still manages to capture the magic of the show! Unfortunately, some of the songs were cropped slightly during this performance (Javert's intervention being one, which happens to be one of my favourites!), but aside from that it is truly remarkable!
Also, the bonus DVD is very fascinating. Running for just under an hour, it is packed full of footage from a variety of worldwide performances that are incredibly entertaining, as well as the story of Les Mis' birth.
