Many of you recognize this photo of Alex in the role of Eponine in ''Les MisÚrable''
For those who have not seen the musical Les MisÚrable, here's a combined video with the song. It's not Alex you hear but it gives you a feeling what it would sound like when Alex sang it.
The song is called ''A little Fall of Rain". It's the part where Eponine returns from the barricades heavely wounded and dies in the arms of  Marius Pontmercy played by Matt Rawle and presented at The Point Theatre in Dublin in 1999

hope you will like it

I have seen this play many times Henny. It is remarkable to watch.
With Alex as Eponine, it would go far beyond that description.   Smiley
Thank you.

Wow, never heard any of Alex's work from Les Mis. I have seen the photo but have not heard her singing. Thanks for posting this.

I actually just compared this to the original Broadway recording that I have. I do have to say that Alex's version is even better than the original recording.

The example you have posted is with Lea Solanga. Since the 25th annisversary edition of Les Mes is out. Samantha Barks plays eponine and Sam seems to have more or less the tonal range of Alex at least to my ears. I'm posting several links the one that puts it over for me  is "On my own again".  Wink
