what are your favourite opening numbers and finales/other songs from musicals?

That’s a really good question… the answers change a lot, but right now, I’d probably say these (and I’ll try to only put links with English subtitles for any songs in other languages) -

Openings:

The prologue from Elisabeth is probably my absolute favorite.
I also really love “Ich hab getraumt von Manderley” from Rebecca“Verone” from Romeo et Juliette (the Hungarian version is also great) , the prologue from Les Mis, No One Mourns the Wicked, and “Hello” from Book of Mormon, The Ballad of Sweeney Todd, Heaven on Their Minds from Jesus Christ Superstar, and All That Jazz from Chicago.
