Cameron Mackintosh’s legendary production of Boublil and Schonberg’sLes Misérablesis now the world’s longest running musical, a global stage sensation at the heart of the West End.

Les Misérables is a musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s great humanitarian novel of one man’s determined survival in the face of another’s vengeful persecution.

Set amid the social and political struggles of 19th century France, West End favouriteLes Misérables tells the story of former prisoner Jean Valjean, who is pursued for decades by his policeman nemesis, Javert. Their epic cat-and-mouse journey will take them from the French fields to the gritty Parisian sewers, amidst an enthralling story of broken dreams, unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

The international award-winning musical sweeps its audience through an epic tale of passion and destruction, against the backdrop of a nation in the grip of revolution.Having started life as a French-language concept album in 1983, producer Cameron Mackintosh worked in conjunction with the Royal Shakespeare Company to adapt the French musical for a British audience, with the resulting show opening at the Barbican Centre in October 1985. A West End transfer soon followed, along with a Broadway production, and the rest is record-setting history.

The dramatic score of Les Misérables includes numbers such as On My Own, One Day More and Do You Hear The People Sing? Its best known song, perhaps, is I Dreamed A Dream, made famous through numerous cover versions by artists ranging from Katherine Jenkins to Susan Boyle.

Now, seen by more than 120 million people worldwide in 52 countries and in 22 languages, this spectacular musical adaptation of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece continues to thrill audiences night after night in London’s West End.
