Post Audition Song - Javert

I've done several searches and haven't really found the answer to this question - sorry if I missed a thread somehow -

Les Mis auditions in December. I will audition for Javert and/or Enjolras. I'm looking for advice on audition songs as well as which parts of the songs to sing. Auditions are by appointment and I assume I'll learn the particulars when I can make the appointment (After October 1) - but I am looking for advice. I've been practicing STARS which seems a no-brainer if they wish me to sing from the show.

Some songs I've been thinking of: Falcon in the Dive; Man of La Mancha; Impossible Dream. Impossible Dream sounds the best, but I have a hard time "buying into" it emotionally, if that makes sense. Any advice is appreciated.

"My Friends" from Sweeney Todd is a pretty good fit musically and yes, Sondheim, but not particularly tricky musically.

Impossible Dream is a great piece, though I'm not sure if it quite fits Javert. I think "Falcon in the Dive" might be the most appropriate, musically and thematically.
