Looking forward to this one, too... Ann's vocals are not quite as solid as they could be, but what bothers me the most about this short excerpt is that she is verging on over-dramatic since the very first verse of this number.
Sure, "I dreamed a dream" is about loss and sorrow... but I'd expect an emotional crescendo to it, while this sounds a little too much, a little too soon. Anyway, Fantine's never been my favourite character in the show, so...
