From DYHTPS website:
“Do You Hear the People Sing celebrates music of two of the world’s most prolific writers of musical theatre in one unforgettable concert with music from Les Miz, Miss Saigon and much more, plus moments never heard and many surprises.” Click through for photos of a pre-show reception held at The Crow Collection of Asian Art Museum and for our interviews with Lea Salonga & Claude-Michel Schonberg!!!
Alain Boublil, Lea Salonga & Claude-Michel Schonberg were interviewed by Channel 11′s Sandie Newton.
Here is some info about the show from the DYHTPS website:
“This arena spectacular show will feature a two level stage with larger-than-life video screens and state-of-the-art sound system. The show follows the record-setting run of Les Misérables at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
Do You Hear the People Sing is a musical celebration of the legendary creative team Boublil and Schönberg. The concert features songs from Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, The Pirate Queen, Martin Guerre and La Revolution Francise on a grand scale. An endeavor of this size can only come from a collaboration of the major arts and entertainment organizations in Dallas including Dallas Pops Orchestra, American Airlines Center, and the Turtle Creek Chorale. “
The reception was held in a beautiful room at the Crow Collection.
