There are not many musicals that can compare to Les Misérables, known affectionately as Les Mis.
Set in 19th-century France at the height of a bloody revolution, it’s a gripping tale of love, despair, sacrifice, and tragedy packed full of emotion.
It tells the story of convict Jean Valjean and his attempts to lead a normal life after being released from prison after almost 20 years behind bars whilst trying to evade relentless police officer Javert.
But when he saves Cosette, the child of a poor factory worker who is being kept as a slave by her innkeepers, his life changes completely.
As Cosette grows up she falls in love with Marius, a student planning a rebellion against the Parisian Government, and the destiny of every character becomes intertwined and unfolds at the height of a bloody and gruesome revolution.
Told entirely through a powerful musical score, featuring familiar songs “I Dreamed A Dream”, “Bring Him Home”, “One Day More” and “On My Own” – there’s no doubt Les Misérables will continue to stand the test of time.
