ONE of the world’s most iconic and longest running musicals, Les Miserables tells the story of Jean Valjean, a former convict who spent a lifetime seeking redemption.

Set against the backdrop of 19th century France and the aftermath of the French Revolution, the timeless story of intertwined destinies reveals the power of compassion and the quiet evil of indifference to human suffering.

As Valjean’s quest for a new life carries him into Paris and to the barricades of the Student Revolution, he is hunted by Inspector Javert and the ghosts of his past.

Performed in more than 40 countries and 22 languages and with a lush score that features such songs as I Dreamed a Dream, On My Own and Bring Him Home, Les Miserables is directed by Karen Francis and brings to life Victor Hugo’s revolutionary novel.

Les Miserables is at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 21, 22, 23 and 24.
