Did You Know?

Contrary to what some believed, Frances Ruffelle revealed in an August 1, 2010 interview with Elizabeth Sanderson of the Daily Mail's "Femail" section that she was never asked to reprise her role as Eponine in this concert.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During Young Cosette's solo "Castle on a Cloud", A loud BANG is heard off-camera. The noise has been attributed to the premature popping of one among many balloons secured at the time in nets against the ceiling. They were intended to be dropped into the concert hall along with confetti at the show's finale. To her credit, Hannah Chick managed to stay in character, flinching visibly as any scared little child would, but continuing her solo without missing a beat.See more »

a superb concert record of a great show, 17 August 2003
Author: didi-5 from United Kingdom

Seeing Les Miz on stage is a breathtaking experience, as it really has the atmosphere, the heart, the energy and the songs to do justice to Victor Hugo's great French novel. So it was no surprise that the Tenth Anniversary Concert really worked - it assembled perhaps the best group of singers (Colm Wilkinson, who created the role of Valjean; Philip Quast, Javert in Australia and on the UK tour (fabulous); Ruthie Henshall as a brittle Fantine; Lea Salonga as Eponine; Michael Ball recreating his role as Marius (and few people can sing Empty Chairs and Empty Tables as well as he does); and from the US, Judy Kuhn as Cosette).

I don't feel that we have been cheated out of a full film version; and in fact I hope they don't attempt it. This semi-dramatised concert does the job and keeps this fantastic musical on record for future generations. Roll on the 20th anniversary, and long may the production run in its London home, where the giant Cosette has become a landmark for tourists getting lost on Piccadilly!
