The only thing more impressive than 100 people harmonizing is multilingual tenors leading the way

Sunday night honored Les Mis in their Oscar-esque fashion. But isn't it helpful to take a look at why the show became such a phenonmenon in the first place? I would like to offer this trip around the world with 17 Valjeans from international productions. Because if nothing else, well-done movie musicals offer exposure to the medium. And there’s nothing like getting another person addicted to a show that took over the musical world for the better part of two decades.
There’s a reason why the show has clout – just listen to the ending (4:44).
