Pre-order Les Miserables the Staged Concert on DVD and Blu-Ray!
Following UNIVERSAL's live broadcast of the limited engagement of Les Misérables December 2nd 2019 to movie theaters in the UK, the Home Distribution division has announced plans to release the production on both DVD and Blu-Ray April 6th, 2020. The expected DVD release would be region locked to Region 2, while the Blu-Ray will be a region-free release. An album (CD) is also expected to be released by Universal UK's Music division early next year as well.
This is not a new collboration for Cameron Mackintosh and Universal Pictures UK; The two companies filmed (and released subsequent DVDs and Blu Rays) The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall, Love Never Dies, Miss Saigon, and more.
This 16-weeks only production stars Michael Ball (Javert), Alfie Boe (Jean Valjean), Carrie Hope Fletcher (Fantine) and Matt Lucas (Thénardier). The cast leads an orchestra of over sixty-five. This spectacular staging of the legendary concert, previously seen in London at the Royal Albert Hall and the O2 Arena, runs from 10 August – 30 November 2019 at the intimate Gielgud Theatre next door to the current home of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre.
Cameron Mackintosh said: ‘The extraordinary sell-out success and response to our spectacular new theatrical concert staging of Les Misérables has been phenomenal so we are thrilled to add one final extra performance on 2 December which will be streamed LIVE to cinema audiences around the UK, Ireland and the US. Starring our entirely brilliant London cast headed by Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher and Matt Lucas, our 16 week limited season at the Gielgud sold out in a few days but now you can storm the barricades to ensure you catch this thrilling live performance direct from the West End in a cinema near you. For the masses of disappointed fans who couldn’t get to see this amazing concert in London this live event will be a unique shared experience of thrilling drama, glorious music and sensational singing performed by an amazing all-star cast and orchestra of over 65 – the like of which you will have never seen before. If you have ever Dreamed a Dream – this is it!’
