Les Miserables is coming to Melbourne


Les Miserables, is considered by many to be one of the greatest novels of the 19th century and has been adapted to suit television, film and onto the stage. This January, you can catch it being performed in spectacular fashion by over 100 cast members from the Young Australian Broadway Choir at the National Theatre in St.Kilda.

The story of Les Miserables is centred around an ex-convict by the name of Jean Valjean and begins as he is being released from prison after serving 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread. Overjoyed with his new found freedom he seeks to begin his life again, however, transitioning into society proves difficult as he is unable to escape his convict past. Growing bitter and apathetic, Jean Valjean resorts to stealing but a simple act of kindness from another in a seemingly hostile world causes him to take a new path that includes redemption, love and faith. Cleverly entwined are a host of other characters making this story even more interesting whether it be to make you laugh, cry or be inspired. The backdrop of the story is France in revolution and inspires with the struggles of the downtrodden against oppressors.

With over 100 cast members the Australian Broadway Choir is superb in Les Miserables


I was blown away by the quality of this show, especially the angelic voices of all the cast of the Young Australian Broadway Chorus which seemed to reach the chandeliers in total harmony. The live orchestra, set and costumes were spot on too and combined to create an energy that had me mesmerized for the entire performance.

You can catch the show from January 18th to January 26th at the National Theatre at 20 Carlisle Street St. Kilda. Ticket prices range from $38.50 - $55.00 and the show runs for just under 3 hours. Visit lesmiz.com.au to find out more.

The Thenardiers are hilarious but make sure you still have your purse after meeting them.
