Weekend Update Les Mis Edition

I had a weekend of wedding and theater. DD1's friends wedding was quite different as for wedding itself, but lovely. Our daughter was gorgeous and a gracious maid of honor. No pictures to share.

As for the play, completely wonderful. Les Mis is the story of Jean Val Jean, who tries to overturn a past by adopting the child of Fontine, who died lost and alone.  Chased to be arrested by Javert, he and his daughter get caught up in the beginning of the French revolution. DD2 was young Cosette, the daughter, forced from no choice to live with a bad inn keeper and wife. Here is her big scene.  She then was adopted, grew up, and was part of ensemble and a slightly older and taller student then played the character.



  I'll unpost in a few days but if you watch, I hope you enjoy. I'm very proud.

  2. Le Mis is the only play I have ever watch that made me cry. It is probably number 2 on my list of all time favorites.
    Your daughter has a beautiful voice.

    1. They staged it minimally, as a school project telling the story and it really worked. The finalcscenes were raw with emotion. These kids were phenomenal and yes, I cried!

  4. Wow, that is so lovely. I understand why you are proud. When I see the youth theatre in Geneva I am always amazed - not just by their talent but by their confidence (and bravery - wild horses wouldn't get me up there). Your daughter has a lovely voice. Anna
