This is an adaptation of a stage musical, which is, in turn, adapted from a moving novel by French writer Victor Hugo (also the author of The Hunchback of Notre-Dame). With revolution in the nineteenth-century Parisian air, a series of acts of kindness leads to a diabolical situation for reformed thief Jean Valjean and Cosette – a young girl he has rescued from a life of abuse and neglect. Attempting to escape the past, they are drawn into a murky world of deception, blackmail and violence. This acclaimed version of the epic historical drama has show-stopping tunes you’ll find stuck in your head forever.
