How was your experience?
This adaptation was very good. The vocalists were amazing. The idea of a round stage left set designers to create an imaginative set. Unfortunately the pit orchestra was abysmal. One of the main reasons I love Les Mis is the depth in which the orchestration provides. On a small scale I can understand a minimization in orchestra parts, however this interpretation was poor, as well as the playing. Toby's should really consider never hiring the trumpet player again. Frequent cracked notes, unable to sustain throughout the performance. The who idea of a pit musician is the ability to sustain your top level throughout the whole show. This musician lost it around intermission, leaving the finale underwhelming, sadly to the trumpet players lack of ability. Hopefully not everyone in the audience has their degree in Music, and didn't notice this.
