Les Miserables Tickets
Les Miserables colloquially known as Les Mis, is a musical composed in 1980 by French composer Claude-Michel Schonberg on a libretto by Alain Boublil. It is perhaps the most famous of all French musicals and one of the most performed musicals worldwide. On October 8, 2006, the show celebrated its 21st anniversary and became the longest-running West End musical in history and is still running. The musical is based on the novel Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Its Tony award-winning score includes the songs
- I Dreamed a Dream
- Do You Hear the People Sing?
- One Day More
- Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
- Master of the House
- On My Own
The musical opened in September 1980 at the Palais des Sports in Paris. In 1982, English producer Cameron Mackintosh began work on an English language version, with lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer. The first English production produced by Mackintosh and adapted and directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird opened on October 8, 1985, in the Barbican Arts Centre in London before moving first to the Palace Theatre and later to the Queen's Theatre, where it is still playing.
The Broadway production opened on March 12, 1987 and was nominated for twelve Tony Awards, winning eight, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, and ran until 2003. It is still the third longest-running Broadway show in history. A fully re-orchestrated Broadway revival opened on November 9, 2006 at the Broadhurst Theatre.
Les Mis placed first in a BBC Radio 2 listener poll of the Nation's Number One Essential Musicals in June 2005, receiving more than 40% of the votes.
The recurring themes in the score add an interesting depth to the story, as different characters sing different songs to the same music through the course of the show.
Javert's fall from grace and Valjean's rise from despair one of the plot's central themes is explored in complementary music. Valjean's "What Have I Done?" and "Javert's Suicide" are each character's response to an extraordinary show of mercy from another character: Valjean in response to the Bishop's silver, and Javert in response to Valjean's allowing him to escape with his life. Both songs deal with the characters dealing with the mercy they've been shown, but with different results: Valjean swears a life living up to the Bishop's expectations, while Javert ends in suicide.
On December 19th 2006, it was announced that Les Miserables would extend its run until September 1, 2007. Since, it was announced that it may begin to work in an open-ended format. In this instance, the show may run until the producers decide to close because of ticket sales or for personal reasons, rather than having a set date. Tickets are available from now until January 6, 2008.
