O2 Arena, October 3rd
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Les Miserables opening in the west end, Cameron Mackintosh staged this huge and spectacular event featuring celebrities including Matt Lucas, Alfie Boe and Nick Jonas. Performed for a total of 32,000 people over two performances, the show was broadcast live around the world to cinemas in High Definition, and also recorded for a DVD and Blu-ray disk available worldwide. It has since been broadcast on US network television.
Three huge LED screens dominated the space, providing over 200 square metres of video playback which included live relay from the on-stage cameras, and a selection of the images and animation produced by 59 for the current world tour.
59 devised and controlled the entire video system used to deliver video to the screens.
