Les Misérables: School Edition is based on Victor Hugo’s humongous historical novel of 1862 that covers the twists, turns and tales of French Revolution. Despite its inherent theme of adversity and misfortune along with the weight of the title, Les Mis is not all misery and no-joy-show rather it beautifully brings to stage the profound realities of our deep dark history. Set in early 19th-century France in the air of rebel and revolt, the musical is a strong and smart depiction of the transition of a society going through the several stringent stages of revolution.
As is the book so is the musical, a pure reflection of the great French Revolution, which was for the emancipation of all. The plot follows the struggle stories of various characters for redemption and revolution to attain Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité.
The hard hitting facts, strong book, glorious composition, compelling acts, magnificent sets and soulful score makes this musical the longest and strongest musical in the World.
Featuring the heart-touching songs like ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and ‘Castle on a Cloud, Les Mis is a legendary phenomenon that has been witnessed by more than 60 million people.
