This past weekend, I sat down with Kelli (and a friend) and watched the 25th Anniversary concert performance of "Les Miserables" on PBS. And you know, I'm a little embarrassed to say this: I've never actually seen a full performance of Les Mis -- not until this past weekend. I'm familiar with most of the score, but why I haven't seen a performance of it, I don't really know.
Now that I have, though, I can honestly say... I'm a fan. I really enjoyed it. The set, the lights, the performances -- all very engaging. Well worth the watch.
In fact, I thought I'd steal your attention for a bit, and share some of my favorite moments. The video above is the 25th Anniversary opening segment of Les Mis -- including the "Work Song". The video below features "Red and Black", and as well as the iconic "Do You Hear The People Sing".
When I own a DVD copy of "Les Miserables", It'll probably be this 25th Anniversary performance (originally performed on October 3, 2010 in England). I'm sure there were other great performances as well. This one just struck a cord with me.
Sit back, enjoy the videos... and I dare you not to sing along!
