The final "Not Another Love Story" teaser: Do You Hear the People Sing?

As our team hurries to finish our final Fantazzztic Film Awards entry, a.k.a. the final version of our movie Not Another Love Story, I bring you a pair of relevant videos.

The following clips were taken from the 10th Anniversary Concert of the musical Les Misérables [Schönberg, Boublil, & Mackintosh]. This concert, now also known as Les Misérables - The Dream Cast in Concert, brought together many of the veterans from the show and was staged at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England.

Quick notes on the leads:

Colm Wilkinson as Jean Valjean [Original London / Broadway Cast]
Philip Quast as Javert [Original Australian Cast / Complete Symphonic Recording]
Ruthie Henshall as Fantine [Replacement London Cast]
Jenny Galloway as Madame Thénardier [Replacement London Cast]
Alun Armstrong as Thénardier [Original London Cast]
Lea Salonga as Éponine [Replacement Broadway Cast, first non-Caucasian lead character]
Michael Ball as Marius [Original London Cast / Complete Symphonic Recording]
Michael Maguire as Enjolras [Original London Cast]
Judy Kuhn as Cosette [Original London Cast]
Anthony Crivello as Grantaire [Original London Cast]

First, the actual version of "Do You Hear the People Sing?", as it is sung by the indignant students on the eve of their revolution. Among the students are their leader Enjolras, Courfeyrac, Feuilly, Joly, and many others.

Second is the encore version of "Do You Hear the People Sing?", the first encore of the concert. This version is sung by, first, the Choir, and then expands to the entire Cast and Chorus.

There is some relevance between
Les Miz and Granado Espada, which I'll be expanding on in future entries.

Hope you enjoy watching the videos - and watch out for the final version of
Not Another Love Story!
