Looking at the video of "I Dreamed a Dream" (as well as the 1987 cast album that just included "On My Own" and DYHTPS from the original Japanese cast), it's interesting to look at how different the lyrics were in some cases compared to the more complete albums from 1994 and 2003.
In any case, though, thank you for sharing!

Jump to the end of this video (ODM) and look at Javert!
The Hungarian cast was actually the first full show video I watched. Yes, I watched Les Mis in a language I didn't understand and at a time when I didn't have any idea how the stage version of Les Mis is supposed to be. Actually I got that video in hope of seeing the famous "2460!@#*&#$*#%@...." but sadly it didn't appear. And I watched it again yesterday. All I can say is...it's kind of hilarious.
I don't know if this has been posted before...West End Live 2013: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LOEfFuTixo
I've been looking for his West End Valjean videos but without much success. I think I have a full show video of the same cast but Valjean is played by another guy. Btw, I don't like the Marius. And that Enjolras (forget his super long name...something like Alexander?) is much better in Elisabeth (he's my favorite Rudolf actually) and Tanz der Vampire but he's just not Enjolras. I like the Éponine a lot though.

I don't know French, but I get the feeling there's more to it in the original--that it's more poetic than the translation, which would figure. Also, this is a full 3 hours long. I hate to admit it in this company, but I'm not familiar enough with the musical to confidently identify the songs I'm hearing, although some are easy-- Rouge/Noir for instance.

I don't think there is a full video of Gero in London. I know there are highlights, and another one, but I think the other one is just highlights too. Need to get my hard drive connected up to check further. It's annoying that the full video of the first 2013 cast has got an understudy for Valjean, because it's got Tam as Javert, Chris Jacobsen as Enjy and Jamie Ward as Marius, so is otherwise pretty darn perfect.
