Set in early 19th-century France, Les Misérables is the story of Jean Valjean, a burly French peasant of abnormal strength and potentially violent nature, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister’s child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him to, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.

This international smash-hit may be the most popular musical in the world. Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. It is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made Les Misérables a popular masterpiece
