Have you ever tried to read Victor Hugo;s acclaimed novel? It is epic
to say the least (which is just one of the reasons we're so grateful to Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg for their record-breaking musical adaptation), but well worth a try for literary fans.
Noted as the world's longest running musical, Les Miserables is a prerequisite for true musical theatre lovers around the world, and where better to catch up with Jean Valjean, Javert, Cosette, Marius and the rest of the revolution than in the city that first hosted Les Miserables debut performance back in 1985. The show may have grown in both scale and popularity since then, but the children of the revolution have lost none of their fighting spirit.
Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, the thrilling story provides not only an overture for the revolution itself, but also glimpses into the daily lives of the impoverished French citizens and their struggle for survival. Dexterously adapted to carry deep emotion, warm humour and a real sense of struggle, Les Miserables will transport you to a past world, a world where the struggle for survival and beauty of love exist side by side... and all to song!
As a musical Les Miserables is the definition of show-stopper, with more than thirty cast recordings and numerous awards making sure this top musical is never
off the stage! Our discount theatre tickets
