French President Francois Mitterrand, French film director Louis Malle and the Broadway musical cast of "Les Miserables" joined hands in New York Wednesday to open a yearlong celebration of the French Revolution's bicentennial. The cast sang selected hits from the show. At New York University, Malle read from the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen, which launched the revolution in 1789. "Nothing better defines modern democracy than the synthesis, always to be reinvented, between liberty and equality," Mitterrand proclaimed in French.
