A record-breaking musical, Les Misérables owes its success to the universality of its story, which has reached over 130 million spectators worldwide.

This new production, in French, 45 years after the adventure began in 1978, allows us to rediscover many songs that have become timeless: J’avais rêvé (I Dreamed a Dream), À la volonté du peuple (Do You Hear the People Sing? ), Mon histoire (On My Own), Le Grand jour (One Day More)… The libretto has been reworked for the occasion by Alain Boublil. In keeping with the text, the staging emphasizes the symbolic dimension of the characters (Jean Valjean, Cosette, Javert, Les Thénardier, Gavroche…), while preserving the fluidity of the transition from one setting to another, characteristic of the work. Victor Hugo’s humanist fresco finds its breadth in music, and resonates with everyone: “So long as ignorance and poverty exist on earth, books of the nature of Les Misérables cannot fail to be of use“.

Production : Théâtre du Châtelet and SPJL Production – Stéphane Letellier-Rampon, in agreement with Cameron Mackintosh.
In agreement with Music Theatre International Europe Ltd, Drama Paris and Cameron Mackintosh Ltd.
