Reviews - What do customers think about Audio CD-Les Miserables (Radio Theatre) (3 CD)?
Magnifique!....Full Cast Performance Feb 8, 2009
"Les Misérables" is tale I just can't get enough of. There are so many wonderful versions of this beautiful tale, and I try to experience this story in all forms. This audio book is superb.
A brillant cast led by Brian Blessed as Jean Valjean and the wonderful music composed and directed by Jared DiPasqual bring Victor Hugo's powerful tale of the human spirit to life in this stirring radio performance.
Enter the soul of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict,who suffers and sacrifices on his journey to redemption. Experience his love and devotion for his adopted daughter Cosette, who he protects at all costs. The French Revolution, the years of being stalked by Javert,the lawman obsessed with capturing him,and the intense young love of Cosette and Marius are all brought to life in this outstanding performance and will stir your imagination to it's fullest.
Brian Blessed gives a powerful performance. You will know him from his work in several of Kenneth Branagh's Shakespearean productions. He was The Ghost in "Hamlet", Seigneur Antonio in "Much Ado About Nothing" and also portrayed Lord Locksley in the Costner version of "Robin Hood". Geoffrey Palmer("The Madness of King George"/"As Time Goes By") turns in a superb performance of Javert.Also included in this marvelous cast is Tony Robinson,Leo McKern and Gina Beck as Cosette.
This performance is also available on cassette.Les Miserables (Focus on the Family Radio Theatre) And if you love this story, I would also recommend Les Miserables (Original French Version) NO SUBTITLES on DVD starring Gerard Depardieu(Valjean) and Malkovich(Javert). It's just a little different take, and a most enjoyable view.
Follow the long road to forgiveness with Jean Valjean in this beautiful radio production performance of Victor Hugo's timeless tale.
love it Dec 16, 2008
WOW. Is there a five plus star rating that I can choose? This Radio Theatre version of Les Miserable is fabulous. The quality of everything Focus on the Family Radio Theatre does is sky-high. The acting, sound effects, storyline production, ... all fabulous. This is not a musical version. You should hear their three-part version of "Amazing Grace", the story of William Wilburforce who almost single-handedly saw to it that slavery was abolished in Great Brittain. Wow.
FANTASTIC Nov 29, 2008
I had to drive my son to college in September, so I purchased this CD. What a joy to listen to this in the car with my daughter after we dropped my son off at college. We had 8 hours of driving back home. We listened to CD 1, then the first CD from the musical, then your CD 1 again, then CD 2, the second musical CD, CD 2 again, etc. The 8 hour drive went so fast and the last sentence of your CD ended as we pulled into the garage!!!!
I loved this so much that I purchased 2 more for Christmas gifts!!!
