EDITORS’ NOTES

A major delight of this classic 1980 musical is the unusually large number of singers who receive an opportunity to shine. First among them, though, is personality-rich Colm Wilkinson as Valjean, who's at his subtlest during "Bring Him Home," a touchingly passionate ode to friendship. But the enduring appeal of Les Mis also rests on a pair of potent ensemble numbers: the full-cast populist anthem "Do You Hear the People Sing?" and the Thénardiers' masterpiece of comedy and malice, "Master of the House."
