Les Miserables London: global stage sensation for over 30 years
Based on the groundbreaking 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, Les Miserables elaborates on the social injustices of the French Revolution. Culminating in the June Rebellion in Paris, it is one of the great novels of its time, while its universal themes still resonate with audiences today. Focussing on the struggles of a group of characters in 19th century France, the story follows ex-convict Jean Valjean on his journey to redemption. Shunned by society for his past crimes, he decides to reform and eventually positions himself as the kind-hearted mayor of Montreuil-sur-Mer. There, he rescues the wronged Fantine, who is bullied by her fellow workers for keeping an illegitimate daughter – Cosette.
After Fantine's death from destitution, Valjean makes it his duty to adopt Cosette and is forced to flee from detective Javert after retrieving his new daughter from her malicious guardians Monsieur and Madame Thenardiers. Growing up unaware of her father's secret identity, the gracious Cosette doesn't realise the jeopardy she places their lives in when she falls in love with revolutionary Marius.
A piece of extraordinary social commentary, Les Mis explains that the 'miserables' in the story are not inherently bad but damned to lead a life of immorality. Despite the odds, many manage to become a force for good in the world, instilling a feeling of love, hope and compassion in the tale. Featuring epic songs "I Dreamed A Dream", "Bring Him Home", "One Day More" and "On My Own", this timeless story holds a place in the hearts of theatregoers across the world.
