    Press review

    Lillian Bikset, Monumentalt (literally: Monumental), Dagbladet, 05.02.2009:

    "Les Misérables is the greatest musical effort Oslo Nye Teater (Oslo New Theatre) has ever put down. The pressure of sound is at times violent, and there can be too many persons onstage at the not at all that wide stage. But at the same time the scenes are so well planned visually, and so consciously choreographed, that director Hungnes & fellow instructor/choreographer Marianne Skovli Aamodt get away with overpopulating it."
