I know you're not Italian but do you know anything about a production of Les Miserables performed in Italy (But in English) in 2012. There are some clips on youtube "Les Misérables, Bologna - Teatro Comunale 19/07/12" of some of the songs but I wondered if you know whether there is audio or video (even highlights if not full) of this anywhere that I could trade for?

thefleetstreetvicomte:

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!

who do you think will be nominated for best actor in a musical?

At the Tonys? I’d say:

  • Neil Patrick Harris for Hedwig & the Angry Inch 
  • Ramin Karimloo for Les Misérables 
  • Andy Karl for Rocky 
  • Jefferson Mays for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder 
  • Steven Pasquale for The Bridges of Madison County 

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
