Musical (1980)


Musique: Claude-Michel Schonberg
Paroles: Alain Boublil • Jean-Marc Natel
Livret: Alain Boublil • Jean-Marc Natel

Type de série: Original
Théâtre: London Run (Londres - Angleterre)
Durée : 33 ans 7 mois 4 semaines
Nombre :
Première Preview : mardi 08 octobre 1985
Première : samedi 23 novembre 1985
Dernière : samedi 13 juillet 2019
Mise en scène : Trevor Nunn • John Caird
Chorégraphie : Kate Flatt
Commentaires : After 19 years at the Palace Theatre the production was moved to the smaller Queen’s Theatre (the Palace needed considerable renovation to meet safety standards). In order to fit into the new space the scenery was reduced in size and the physical production needed shrinking. The most controversial aspect of the move was the size of the orchestra. The Palace pit accommodated 21 musicians, but the Queen’s could only hold 11. The rest of the sound was provided by a computer. The Musicians Union threatened a strike, but capitulated when Cameron Mackintosh claimed the only alternative was to close the show. The critics generally agreed that the “reduced” version had suffered no loss of richness or texture, and the new orchestral sound was perfectly satisfactory thanks to the new-fangled “Sinfonia” computer. Having now been seen by more than 50 million people in 38 countries and 21 languages, “Les Mis” had now become the most successful musical of all time.
