The live cast recording of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert is released today!
Recorded live at the Gielgud Theatre last year with an all-star cast including Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean Valjean, Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine, Matt Lucas as Thénardier, Rob Houchen as Marius, Bradley Jaden as Enjolras, Katy Secombe as Madame Thénardier, Shan Ako as Éponine and Lily Kerhoas as Cosette and an orchestra of over 65. .
The original Cameron Mackintosh/RSC 1985 production of Les Misérables played at the Barbican and Palace Theatres before continuing its record-breaking run at the Queen’s Theatre. In July 2019 Mackintosh closed the original production and Queen’s Theatre which was totally re-built with a spectacular new auditorium. It re-opened after four month’s work as the Sondheim Theatre with the new version of Les Misérables which opened to stunning reviews last January and hopes to return to the West End next Spring. During the four-month closure Mackintosh mounted a four-month sell-out season of Les Misérables – The Staged Concert with this cast next door at the Gielgud.
