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. This epic story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. Boublil and Schönberg’s score includes the songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” “Do You Hear The People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Master of the House” and many more.
“No show in the world has ever demonstrated the survival of the human spirit better than Les Miz, and it’s time to let the people sing again,” Mackintosh said. “We are all thrilled to be bringing her home to you.”
