I recently watched my first musical and now this is my favourite genre. I watched a lot of them and made up the top of my favourites.

Roméo & Juliette: Les Enfants de Vérone (2010)

This is the french musical based on a play by William Shakespeare with music and lyrics by Gérard Presgurvic. The musical starring with Damien Sargue, John Eyzen and Cyril Niccolaï.The musical is quite different from the original piece: the original Elizabethan text is not used. Also added new characters.

Why do I like this version of the musical more than the first? Because there are songs which there are not in the first. Some actors I liked more (especially John Eyzen), and some actors developed their skill. I really love R&J and songs from this musical, so I strongly advise you to watch it.

Roméo et Juliette, de la haine à l'amour

Well, in general, it is clear. The first version of the musical starring with Damien Sargue, Gregori Baquet and Philippe d'Avilla Almost all the same songs. Some actors I like more. And some songs too. I think that thid version is darker and it gives the musical a special charm.

Mozart, l'opéra rock

Another one French musical starring with Mikelangelo Loconte. The show tells about the life of the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from the age of 17 and ending with his death.

I like this musical because there are perfect actors/singers they do their work magnificently. I really like the songs and listen them in my free time. I especially love Florent Mothe who plays the role of Antonio Salieri, he great dhowed the character, conveyed his feelings not only through the words but also through songs.

Notre-Dame de Paris

And again the French musical starring with
Hélène Ségara : Esmeralda
Garou : Quasimodo
Daniel Lavoie : Frollo
Bruno Pelletier : Gringoire
Patrick Fiori : Phoebus
Luck Mervil : Clopin
Julie Zenatti : Fleur-de-Lys.
It is based upon the novel Notre-Dame de Paris by the French novelist Victor Hugo. The musical tells about the gypsy Esmeralda.

I like this production because the songs are AWESOME and singers are AWESOME. There are some famous songs in this musical: "Belle" and "Les Temps des Cathédrales". I also like the song "Le Val d’Amour".

Chicago is an American musical crime comedy-drama film based on the stage-musical of the same name, exploring the themes of celebrity, scandal, and corruption in Chicago during the Jazz Age. The film starring with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger and Richard Gere.
I love Catherine Zeta-Jones in this film. My favourite song is "Cell Block Tango".

Граф Орлов

This is the production of the Moscow Operetta Theater (Yes, it is the Russian musical) starring with
Граф Орлов - Andrey Belyavsky, Alexander Ragulin, Igor Balalaev
Elizabeth - Teona Dolnikova, Aglaia Shilovskaya, Valeria Lanskaya
Ekaterina II - Ekaterina Guseva, Lika Rulla, Natalia Sidortsova.
There are a few casts, so I indicated several actors.

Songs in this musical are very beautiful. The production is very qualitative. Most of all I liked the performer of the role of Ekaterina II - Ekaterina Guseva. She very believably showed the character and made a lot of feel. I liked this musical.
