It’s bigger, it’s better and it’s back!
Based on the Victor Hugo classic of the same name, Les Misérables has become one of the world’s most popular musicals. This theatrical masterpiece has been translated into 22 languages and professional productions have been seen by over 50 million people in 38 countries. It has won numerous awards throughout the world, including 8 Tony Awards.
Set against social and political struggles in 19th Century France, the fugitive Jean Valjean is mercilessly tracked by Javert, who is possessed by the pursuit. Their sprawling saga takes us from the Parisian underworld, with all the colour and villainy of Dickensian London, to the excitement and high romance of the student revolution on the barricade.
For more than two decades audiences have been thrilled and inspired by this wonderful version of Les Misérables, which is set to one of the most memorable and dramatic scores ever written. I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own, Do You Hear the People Sing?, Stars and Bring Him Home are among its many highlights which have moved audiences to standing ovations performance after performance.
