The acclaimed new Australian production of Les Miserables will play at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne until December 20 before storming barricades in Perth and Sydney early next year.
Final tickets have just been released for the show’s last weeks in Melbourne and it is anticipated that the season will close with a bang at the box office.
A critical and commercial success, this new imagining of the much-loved musical features modernised staging, orchestrations and scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, author of the book upon which the musical is based.
The English-language reworking production of Boublil and Schönberg’s original French musical opened in London in 1985 at the Barbican Centre, produced by Cameron Mackintosh. Since then, the show has wowed audiences around the world, playing over 48,000 professional performances in 42 countries in 22 languages.
This new Australian production, led by Simon Gleeson as Jean Valjean and Hayden Tee as Javert, is one of the biggest musical theatre events to hit our theatres in recent times. Tickets are sure to be snapped up fast.
