Les Miserables Reviews London

Les Miserables

by Claude-Michel Schonberg, Alain Boublil

Based on Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel of the same name, set in early nineteenth-century France, the plot follows the stories of the characters as they struggle for redemption and revolution. An ensemble that includes prostitutes, student revolutionaries, factory workers, and others joins the lead characters.

The Tony Award-winning score features the song I Dreamed a Dream, sung as a solo by the character Fantine during the first act. Numerous professional artists have recorded cover versions of this song since the musical’s premiere in October 1985, including Neil Diamond, Aretha Franklin, David Essex, Susan Boyle, Michael Crawford, Lea Salonga and most recently as a duet between Idina Menzel and Lea Michele on the television show Glee.
