More About Les Miserables - The Public's Choice
Created in 1980 by Frenchmen Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg, this musical drew much of its inspiration from the runaway Broadway hit Jesus Christ Superstar. The groundbreaking concept of marrying opera with pop music prompted the duo to find the perfect script for such a production. When Boublil and Schonberg revisited the classic French novel they saw the potential for huge success, and it's safe to say their hunch proved correct.
In 1985, the English adaptation, with lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, premiered at London's Barbican Arts Centre. Though it's received mixed reviews from critics over the years, audiences continue to flock to its stagings in droves. Buoyed by the public's adoration, 'Les Mis' has been running for over 25 years and has won more than 70 major theatre awards to date. Emotional songs from its soundtrack include 'On My Own' and 'Can You Hear the People Sing', among myriad other numbers that make it a heartrending and unforgettable tale best experienced live.
