A Musical Masterpiece
Les Miserables is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest novels ever written. The novel, written in 1862 by Victor Hugo, has successfully been turned into one of the greatest musical theatre pieces ever written too. The story, set between 1815-1832 against the backdrop of Revolutionary France, provides a poignant exploration of this turbulent time in French history. It is an exploration of the journey of ex-convict Jean Valjean his process of redemption and his desire to make a difference.
Les Miserables has not been performed by a major company in Adelaide for many years. With only six performances in this run, you will want to purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
The Les Miserables cast of 50 performers and a live 26 piece orchestra is certain to impress and mesmerise. Well known songs from this musical include Stars, On My Own, I Dreamed a Dream and Do You Hear The People Sing?
As with every production of Les Miserables, you will be certain to go home contemplating the philosophical, ethical and political issues that Hugo is so well known for; social and economic injustice along with personal justice and the experience of redemption.
The stellar cast bring their collective experience and passion to once again solidify Les Miserables as a musical theatre masterpiece. The producer, Shane Davidson, comes to the performance with vast experience, having directed the 2004 Her Majesty's Theatre production with Normie Rowe as Jean Valjean.
The production is being held in the St Peter's Collegiate Girls' School's recently completed Art's Centre. This beautiful theatre has a 600 seat auditorium and will certainly provide an exceptional location for the performances.
