“Les Misérables is the show of shows!” - Newsweek
The musical phenomenon that is the multi-award winning Les Misérables returns to Adelaide in an all new production in September this year.
Seen by more than 70 million people in 44 countries and in 22 languages around the globe, Les Mis is the longest running musical currently onstage, with the original London production celebrating its 32nd anniversary in October 2017.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables is a powerful affirmation of the power of the human spirit to survive against adversity. It tells an enthralling story of broken dreams, hope, faith, courage, love, sacrifice and redemption.
Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for the dying Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, all of their lives change forever.
Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop. Featuring the songs “I Dreamed A Dream”, “Bring Him Home”, “One Day More” and “On My Own” Les Misérables is a masterpiece of theatre not to be missed.
