Anniversary Concerts & Recordings
The first recording of Les Misérables was the original French language concept album, released in 1980. This album included a number of musical numbers, lyrics, and melodies different from what most show-goers are familiar with today.
In 1995, the 10th anniversary of the West End production was celebrated with a "dream cast" concert. The concert featured nearly all the musical numbers of the show, with just a few omissions. 15 years later, the West End celebrated it's 25th anniversary with another concert in 2010.
