“I dreamed a dream in time gone by,
when hope was high and life worth living.
I dreamed that love would never die.
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.”
The wait is almost over…
As part of its first UK tour in a decade the show, based on Victor Hugo’s 19th century epic novel, has been technically re-imagined in a new version that has excited audiences and critics alike. The famous revolving stage has gone but, with stunning new design, projection and lighting effects, the show has never looked or sounded fresher.
The year is 1832. Jean Valjean, a French peasant who stole a loaf of bread and ended up spending 19 years in gaol for his trouble, is living to regret it. Then he goes and jumps parole which doesn’t go down well with Javert, a particularly jobsworth cop who, with his unshakeable belief in the letter of the law, obsessively hounds Valjean until… well, if you want the whole story, read Victor Hugo’s novel. No? You prefer your French classics delivered in the form of a musical and theatrical triumph? Now you’re talking.
Because, thanks to the creative team that includes composer Claude-Michel Shönberg and writer Alain Boublil, and songs including One Day More, I Dreamed a Dream and Do You Hear the People Sing? that’s exactly what ‘Les Mis’ is.
