Home/Costumes, Props, Sets/Les Miserables

In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert.

Epic, grand and uplifting, LES MISÉRABLES packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world.

The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards.
