WHAT IS LES MISERABLES ABOUT?

Jean Valjean is released from prison after almost 20 years in captivity for stealing a loaf of bread, soon after, he breaks his parole and flees to start a new life free of crime. Eight years later, he has worked hard to give himself a better standing in life. However, none of his endeavours impress his embittered parole-officer - the bloody-minded Javert - who will stop at nothing to see Valjean behind bars once again.

Like her father, Valjean's beautiful adopted daughter, Cosette, has to fight for what she wants in life when she falls in love with Marius, a student who has joined the burgeoning fight for justice in the streets of Paris. Will their love be enough to save him from disaster at the barricade?

MUSICAL HISTORY IS MADE

This Olivier and Tony-winning musical includes the songs "Who Am I", "A Little Fall of Rain", "One Day More", "Bring Him Home" and, one of the most famous songs to come from the West End, "I Dreamed a Dream". Colloquially known as Les Miz, the musical actually started out as a French-language concept album. The first musical-stage adaptation of Les Mis was presented at the Palais des Sports, in 1980.

It was not until 1983 that producer Cameron Mackintosh received a copy of the French concept album from director Peter Farago. Two years later, Les Miserables took to the Barbican stage, and the rest, as they say, is history. The stage musical also inspired a live-action musical film in 2012, starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway in her Oscar-winning role as the doomed Fantine. 

Hugo's momentous story has most recently been revived in a six-part drama by the BBC, however, this latest offering doesn't include our favourite tunes (boo!).

What we thought

REVOLUTIONARY Jaw Dropping iconic.

The world has embraced 'Les Mis' with both arms.

As the first trumpet sounded and the curtain rose I was sucked into 19th century France along with the inner turmoil of our hero Jean Valjean, played by the fantastic Killian Donnelly.
