hmm.. never heard about it to be honest. I checked with a couple of people who have huge Les Mis collections but they don’t have anything from that either…
If any of my followers knows more about this let me know :)
This production was put on stage for four performances at the Teatro Comunale in Bologna in July 2010. Actually, it was the school edition of the show staged with the collaborations of Bernstein School of Musical Theater, the most prestigious school for musical performers in Italy. The videos on youtube were all posted by the same person and I’m sure he/she is the master, so you shoud try asking her/him. The actor who played Valjean posted on youtube a couple video of his performance (Valjean’s Death and Bring Him Home), he surely has a full video of it. I don’t think you’ll find an audio or video of it in a trading list, it’s a highly unknown production and in Italy there is no “trading musical audios” tradition!

In less than 100 days I’ll go back to London! :D
At the Tonys? I’d say:
I’m rooting for Mr Mays who’s delivering an outstanding performance as the 8 members of the D’Ysquith Family in A Gentleman’s Guide
Plot Twist: All exams got cancelled because the government finally realise that they are actually just marking your memory and not your intelligence and teenagers should be experiencing life and having a good time instead of sat revising bollocks they're not going to use in the future
