Les Misérables

Les Misérables
The epic tale of broken dreams, passion and redemption is set against a nation in the throes of revolution.

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. This true modern classic is based on Victor Hugo's novel and features one of the most memorable scores of all time.

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 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 lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe that 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. His world view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean finally attains the peace that he has sought for so long.

Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, Les Misérables is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made Les Misérables a popular masterpiece.

Perform Concert Version
If I were to still purchase the rights for a show with free admission , would it be in violation to perform this as a concert version (similar to the PBS productions?) I am considering this as an option for a choir concert at the end of the year in lieu of a pop show. Thanks!

I would like to know, how much do we have to pay if we perform the songs of the musical. We would do it in colleges, because the show has a pedagogical purpose and it would be free entrance, only at the end of the show we ask for the will. How we should proceed to do the things good and get more information? Thanks
