About Les Miserables

The Sondheim Theatre is currently closed for refurbishment and will reopen on 18 December with the acclaimed new production of Les Miserables.

Two-time Olivier Audience Award winner, Les Misérables is a true icon of musical theatre! Since premiering at the Barbican Theatre in 1985, Les Misérables has been produced around the world in 44 countries, translated into 22 languages and been seen by over 70 million people.

The show was written by French duo Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil with lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer. Produced by theatrical legend Cameron Mackintosh, you’ll be swept up in the show’s epic drama, scale and timeless songs, including “I Dreamed a Dream”, “On My Own”, “Bring Him Home” and “One Day More”. The show's longevity has been cemented by a successful motion picture adaptation starring Hugh JackmanRussell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, released in 2012 - though there is nothing quite like seeing the show live in its original production in the West End! Don’t wait one day more to book your tickets.

What's the story?

Based on elements of Victor Hugo’s novel of the same name, Les Misérables tells the epic tale of one man's struggle to break free from his past and create a new life for himself and his surrogate daughter in post-Revolutionary France, where discontent amongst the students boils over to create a powerful story of fraternity, equality and freedom.

Released on parole after years on the chain gang for stealing a loaf of bread, Jean Valjean has a religious awakening, leading to him turning his life around. After he shows kindness to Fantine, she leaves her child Cosette in his care as she dies and the two build a new life together, leading to Valjean breaking his parole. Inspector Javert swears he'll have vengeance and devotes his life to tracking him down.   

As the student unrest stirs, young revolutionary Marius falls in love with the now teenage Cosette, but Valjean plans to move away from Paris, until an explosive moment in history and the people of the city are brought together to fight for the right to be free.
