Here are two promo videos for the July performances in Lebanon
Ok, here are some off-the-cuff things because I got too lazy to do the post I original planned.
Number 1 – I know they do this ALL the time in NDdP promos but the mixing of the casts is so hilarious to me. The first video is guilty of this and not the second one. It’s defiantly audio from the original cast but I swear it’s the 2011-2012 Asian tour cast, I could be wrong, but the Esmeralda at 0:26 looks like Candice Parise and judging by the dress it isn’t the same as the one used when Alessandra Ferrari played the role in the “World Tour” cast.
For the record this cast version for the Beymouth performances is the latest French Cast that played in Korea in February 2015.
Number 2 – Why? Why is the audio so bad. Honestly, I can’t tell if this cast sucks or not because of the horrible audio in like every video I have seen from it except the Vivre duet. Such bad audio quality. Though I THINk I like this cast’s Fleur-de-Lys. But it should be a crime for Belle to have that bad of audio quality.
Number 3 – So, I dunno, when do you think France will get performances outside of those concerts they used to do? I means it’s always nice to hear about new Notre Dame de Paris performances but they now seldom leave Asia and let’s not forget that Lebanon did get a Notre Dame de Paris concert in 2012, just saying.
If I sound bitter perhaps I am but I mean besides in Italy there haven’t been a performance of this musical in Europe since 2010 and forget about North America and yet there has been three difference casts in two different languages playing the same cities in East Asia and Russia since roughly 2011. Then again I freely admit that I know nothing about booking and putting on a show of this scale perhaps the blame should go to a lack of interest in the West. Still I for my part can be bitter and jealous.
To those who are fortunate to go to these performances, enjoy and do let me know how the cast is, stupid bad audio in the promo makes it hard to tell.Follow thehunchblog
