Winner of the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Audience Olivier Award. Cameron Mackintosh’s legendary production of Boublil and Schönberg’s Les Misérables is a global stage sensation. Seen by more than 65 million people in 42 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, it is still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 28th year.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. Featuring the songs ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, ‘Bring Him Home’, ‘One Day More’ and ‘On My Own’ – Les Misérables is the show of shows!
Hadley Fraser: “I span the genres. I cycle, I cook, I grow things, I read. And then I sit in front of the telly like most of us and pretend I’m a Welsh rugby player, or a mafia boss or Ned Stark for an hour or two.”
Adam Linstead: “The Bishop shows human compassion that Valjean has long since forgotten. He covers up the theft of the Silver and gives him the Candlesticks. In doing this The Bishop saves Valjean’s soul from darkness and gives it to God. This triggers Valjean’s spiritual crisis.”
