4.0 out of 5 stars Get the 10th Anniversary Concert Instead, March 20, 2011
This review is from: Les Miserables in Concert (DVD)
The four stars are actually because of the bonus material. Three Jean Valjean singing "Bring Him Home" including Colm Wilkinson was a thrill to see. The original London cast performing "One Day More" was spectacular. If only the rest of the concert was that thrilling and exciting. For some reason, the perfomrances just seemed good, but not great. Let's face it, any performance of Les Miserables cannot be terrible because of the wonderful score. However, there are some recordings and concerts that are better than others. After watching hte original London Cast perform "One Day More", I would have rather have seen them perform the concert. The 10th Anniversary Concert cast was far better. Even Lea, the original Kim from Miss Saigon, was better 15 years ago as Eponine than she was as Fantine. Ncik Jonas gave the best performance he could as Marius, but no one can do it better than Michael Ball. Jenny Galloway appeared in both the 10th and 25th concert, but she seemed far better and more enthusiastic in the 10th concert. So, while this was very entertaining, the 10th anniversary concert was better in terms of casting and performance. The one thing I like about this concert is the camera angles, closeups, and shots. But, get the 10th Anniversary concert instead.

Instead? Get both!

I agree with bringjardineback. Get them BOTH. I adored the 10th anniversary for 16 years before buying the 25th which, by far, blows me away. But the 10th anniversary has some SPECTACULAR vocaliztions. I adore Ramin Karimloo's Enjolras in this 25th, but one shouldn't shunt aside Michael Maguire from the 10th anniversary and his (and that show's guys) mind blowing powerful vocal renditions of both RED AND BLACK *and* DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING? and the 10th's ONE DAY MORE, is vocally spectacular as well. Partly because the acoustics in the much-smaller ROYAL ALBERT HALL are much better than those in the cavernous O2 Arena where the 25th Anniversary was performed. But definitely, do not choose one over the other. GET them BOTH.
