5.0 out of 5 stars Add this one to your collection.
I own almost every recording of Les Miserables as well as the 10th Anniversary DVD and now I have the 25th. I absolutely loved the 25th. It is a thrill to compare all these recordings and each one brings something special to the table. The camera work in this version was excellent. This is my first time hearing Alfie Boe sing and he handles the role of Jean Valjean really...

3.0 out of 5 stars A far cry from the 10th anniversary
Overall performance is great except the no voice Nick Jonas who tried really hard but still no match to the real professionals.
I realize the producer put him there to attract young audience , is there no other young talent with equally good -look and much better voice!! He must have an aggressive manager to get him the part. He is the reason I say this is a far cry...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Please with this Purchase,
This review is from: Les Miserables: 25th Anniversary (DVD)I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Getting it through Amazon was much easier than hunting it down at a local retailer (which may not have yielded any results), and shipping was only a matter of 2 or 3 days, which impressed me greatly.
5.0 out of 5 stars Saw it originally on TV,
This review is from: Les Miserables: 25th Anniversary (DVD)I have seen the performance many times on television, and once in live theatre. With the releade of the motion picture stsrring Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe I needed the confirmation that I was the one who knew the nuances of the songs and that what I was hearing and seeing was close, but not quite what my brain remembered.
A classic that should be in everyone's DVD collection, unless they are content to wait for pledge drive for public broadcast tv channels, or it to be circulated through the rotation of a dedicated arts performance or concert channel.
2.0 out of 5 stars missing documentary,
This review is from: Les Miserables: 25th Anniversary (DVD)I mostly bought this to get that fantastic, hour-long programme about the making of Les Miserables. I've seen the show on stage and on film (with the interesting differences)....and really wanted that documentary.
It's not there.
What is there is little more than a lot of flying banner-headlines about the wonderfulness of the show, along with flashes from the documentary....and then back to the main feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fans,
This review is from: Les Miserables: 25th Anniversary (DVD)For true Les Mis fans! Nothing is like seeing it live, but this is a close second. Same Eponine as the movie and she is amazing. My daughter liked that it was a Jonas as Marius.
