Les Miserables' story begins when Jean Valjean is released from prison after serving 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread. He is determined to put his criminal past behind him but his attempts to pull himself out of the gutter are constantly threatened by his conscience. When another man is arrested in his place and threatened by the pursuit of the policeman Javert, Valjean must decide who will be punished.

Victor Hugo, author of the renowned novel on which the musical is based, once said: "You are right, Sir, when you say that Les Miserables is written for a universal audience. I don't know whether it will be read by everyone, but it is meant for everyone." In this spirit Les Miserables, the longest-running musical of all time, has proved tremendously popular with audiences of over 60 million people from 42 countries across the globe.

This stirring, powerful portrait of courageous souls in revolutionary 19th century France boasts an unforgettable score, from I Dreamed a Dream to On My Own and Do You Hear the People Sing? Its iconic characters, incredible songs and moving story have rightfully earned it a permanent place in the West End, where it has played for over 25 years.

Les Miserables London remains an astounding accomplishment. No theatre trip to the capital would be complete without taking in this stunning show at the lavish Queen's Theatre London, directed and adapted by John Caird and Trevor Nunn.
