The story is a tribute to human spirit. Set in 19th century France, Les Miserables tells the tale of unfulfilled dreams, love and sacrifice in the background of a country in the midst of revolution. With Jean Valjean, an ex-convict at the centre of the story showing his battle to avoid being caught by callous policeman Javert following his escape for parole. This is a truly passionate and romanticised saga of redemption with famous songs such as I Dreamed a Dream and Bring Him Home taking place across a twenty year timeline. I defy anyone not to be swept up in the emotion of the score.
Les Miserables is a stunning, emotional and enthralling show, arguably the show of all shows. The current production is not to be missed , the producers constantly evolve and improve the Show, the changes are subtle but well received.
If you have not yet seen the show then this 30th celebratory year is the time to bear witness to musical theatre history. What do we expect from musical theatre? Drama? Love? Emotion? Les Miserables is certain to fulfil your appetite and maybe leave you wanting more.
