Re: The Sound of Les Miserables ..

Allan just to say thanks for the link, and heads up to the best of the thread. It is beyond my comprehension how such a complex set up could be so well controlled, and I am simply in awe of the fine job they did. I have seen the show twice when I lived in the UK, but will have an uphill struggle persuading my wife (who is no fan of musicals) to go see the movie.

Re: The Sound of Les Miserables ..

Trevor, yep if you're into music and musicals, do you think that's the right category for Les Mis?

It really doesn't matter what awards they all get, to produce music like that the whole world can emotionally experience in a darkened movie theatre,
is the achievement of a lifetime.

I'll be grabbing the DVD asap, it'll sell like hot croissants :)

Cheers.

Re: The Sound of Les Miserables ..

Thinking about it, the purchase of the DVD might not be all that great.

Les Mis is the classic example of seeing an emotive show, in the dark, with other people all around you experiencing the same thing.

On a DVD or Bluray at home, it might only have the effect of a good music video. It'll have 'extras' and they'd be interesting,
but how many times would you play it?

I don't walk around the house singing that stuff, France is on the other side of the world.

Cheers.

Re: The Sound of Les Miserables ..

The thing I miss most since moving to New Zealand from the UK, is quality live gigs. A buddy who lives in Toronto, made me miserable this week with an email about Peter Gabriel's Back to Front tour he'd seen over there. The atmosphere and enjoyment from really good live gig is an order of magnitude better than listening to, or watching a DVD. Having said that, I still love to watch DVDs of great gigs. Especially ones I attended, but I definitely get your point.

Re: The Sound of Les Miserables ..

Here's Les Mis Simon Hayes telling all in a podcast, the reasons, the set-ups, the gear and the results.

Not only did he did produce a fantastic job, he explains it just as well ..

Post 125 .. Les Miserables, live singing.... - Page 3 - Current - Discussion Group

Enjoy,
Cheers.
