Les Mis Round-Up: Stage Alumni to Perform at Oscars with Film Cast & Song List for Deluxe Soundtrack
From stage to screen — and now back again.
Les Miserables fans who’ve longed for the stars of the Oscar-nominated film to join forces in a live performance will see their wish come true this Sunday at the Academy Awards.
At rehearsals for the show Friday, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Aaron Tveit, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter took part in a massive production number made up of a medley from the film, including the Oscar-nominated original song “Suddenly.”
They weren’t alone. It was a Les Mis reunion in more ways than just the movie …
The chorus for the performance was made up of cast members who’ve appeared in a number of different versions of the show around the world, including the U.S. tour, the most recent Broadway revival, the production in London’s West End, and the Hollywood Bowl concert.
“What an amazing way to end one of the most extraordinary years in Les Mis history. The old girl still has plenty of life in her at 28,” said Cameron Mackintosh, producer of the stage show and film, who was helping coordinate the presentation.
Also lending a hand was the film’s director, Tom Hooper, who popped forward between each rehearsal of the number to consult with Jackman and Hathaway.
In the film, they occasionally sang duets, but ensemble songs tended to feature each actor cut together in montage from a different location, as with “One Day More.” The Oscars will mark the first time the major stars from the cast have performed as a group.
At least they’ve each got experience singing their numbers live, since Hooper nixed the use of lip-synched tracks during the shoot.
Les Miserables - Complete Song List for Deluxe Film Soundtrack
The "deluxe", 2 CD soundtrack version of Tom Hooper's film adaptation of the stage musical LES MISERABLES will be released on March 18, and the movie's UK Facebook page has just announced the track list. See the songs below!
Lead producer Cameron Mackintosh was quoted by the BBC as stating: "Post-production on the Les Miserables film was extremely tight, with recording of the orchestra, final edit and sound mix having to be completed in only a few weeks. There was only enough time to remix a limited number of tracks so that at least a highlights album could be released for the fans before Christmas. We are delighted with the success of that album and very pleased that we can now add 22 more tracks."
