These two talented men stayed in the production from start to the finish. Sören was Javert for the first time in Helsinki city theatre 1999-2000 and has now returned to the role at Tampereen teatteri. His understudy, Tore Norrby, played the parts of Foreman and Grantaire in the production as well as other ensemble roles. He is known to play Javert at least once at ÅST.
Cosette from the Polish production, forgive me, I’m blanking out on their names!
These are Mikaela Tidermark and Marika Westerling and totally not from the Polish production. They both played Cosette in Finland, in the Finnish-Swedish production at Åbo Svenska Teater, Turku. Mikaela is Swedish and Marika is Finnish.
Polish? Heh. ÅST Les Mis has been labeled as Swedish multiple times, but Polish is a brand new one… The latest Polish Cosette was a brunette, am I right?
Oh well, no matter, mistakes happen. These two were still fantastic Cosettes!
Alexander Lycke: Led hans väg (Bring Him Home), Åbo Svenska Teater’s 2010–2012 production of Les Misérables
People. I have calmed down now and have an important message for you all:
This is a video of my #1 favourite Valjean from my #1 favourite musical production of all times singing Bring Him Home. A proshot video I never ever suspected would leak outside the theatre’s walls ever. I usually don’t like this song, but Alex’s version… As far as I’m concerned, this is the perfect rendition of this song.
I’m not saying you should agree with me, but I am forcefully saying that you really should take four minutes of your day and at least play this in the background or something.
