Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. Les Misérables School Edition is one of the most memorable scores of all time. Not available for performance by adult amatuer groups and rarely available for youth groups, we are delighted to be producing this epic show.
In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter.
Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition packs an emotional wallop. It is a sung-through musical and this edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one the greatest musicals ever written.
