If there’s one musical you must see in your lifetime, it’s Les Misérables.
Set in 19th-century France at the height of a bloody revolution, this gritty tale of love, despair and tragedy is packed with raw emotion and provides compelling viewing from start to finish.
Little wonder that it continues to capture imaginations and transcend language barriers, thirty years after it first hit the stage.
Follow the powerful story of Jean Valjean, who attempts to rebuild his life as a condemned outcast following his release from prison after spending 19 years behind bars for stealing bread to feed his serving family.
When Valjean breaks his parole he goes on the run in a bid to start a new life free from crime under a new name, eventually becoming a mayor and factory owner.
Parole officer Javert will stop at nothing to see Valjean behind bars once again and continues his endless pursuit for the ex-convict.
Little does Valjean know that when he saves Cossette, the young daughter of down trodden factory worker Fantine and agrees to care for her, that her upbringing will eventually lead him back into the path of Javert at the height of the violent uprising in France.
Told entirely through an dramatic and emotive musical score, featuring evocative songs “I Dreamed A Dream”, “Empty Chairs and Empty Tables”, “Bring Him Home”, “One Day More” and “On My Own” –Les Misérables remains a powerhouse of a musical that shows no signs of slowing down and continues to re-write its own record books
During its thirty year history Les Miserables has won over 100 international theatre awards, including eight Tony Awards and three coveted Olivier’s, and has been translated into 22 different languages.
