The male singers were particularly strong, the standard was edging close to that of Princess Theatre productions. The barricade looked less convincing, however, it staged the scene. The chorus was large, which enabled a grander scale production. Technical sound effects of gun shots were capably achieved. Spiritual aspects such as death of Fantine, were suitably represented as the spirit transmuted into light from above, and the final scene where Jean Valjean writes his epitaph echoed of Goethe’s Faust in his alchemical study.
