Listen to "Les Misérables: The Staged Concert" online now!
While you can now pre-order the DVD/Blu-Ray version of the recent West End production of "Les Misérables: The Staged Concert", you don't have to wait to April 6th in order to listen to the full concert! BBC2 Radio recently featured the full production, which is now available to stream online worldwide.
"Matt Lucas presents a spectacular staging of the legendary Les Misérables concert, which took place at the intimate Gielgud Theatre next door to the current home of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre. The large cast and more than 65-member strong orchestra of this production will be led by Michael Ball playing Javert, Alfie Boe as his nemesis Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher bringing Fantine to life on the stage and Matt Lucas portraying Thénardier. Ball returns to sing Javert after his performance at The 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables in which he sung the same role, and on which the limited run production is based. Longtime friend of Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, has been internationally lauded for his performances as Jean Valjean. Carrie Hope Fletcher joins the cast hot off the staggering success of her portrayal of Veronica in Heathers The Musical which played at both The Other Palace and the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Matt Lucas, perhaps best known for his roles in televisions series like Little Britain and Doctor Who, is also no stranger to Les Miserables. He sang the role of Thénardier at the 25th-anniversary concerts and went on to do a short run playing the character at the Queen's Theatre. He now returns to the role for the Les Miserables: The All-Star Staged Concert at London's Gielgud Theatre."
