Les Misérables School Edition

Les Misérables School Edition
Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 70 million, this musical phenomenon is an epic tale of passion and redemption in the throes of revolution.



Les Misérables
is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo's novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985. Featuring updated orchestrations based on the Tony-nominated 2014 Broadway revival, Les Misérables School Edition also includes new support materials including a Reference Recording for rehearsals, an enhanced Director’s Guide and an expanded Study Guide. 

In nineteenth 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 lifelong 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 that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through piece is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours while beautifully maintaining the integrity of this musical masterpiece.  

 

Les Misérables School Edition may only be performed by a cast of students aged 18 and under, without exception.

About on campus Les Mis Jr. Presentation

We are students studying at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. We would be performing on our school campus auditorium. My question is: 

A STUDENT in Israel is anyone from 18 to 23 in age. Does that age factor fall within your definition of student production? Is the fact that these performers are ALL students in university  performing on campus allow them to perform the School Addition of Les Mis. In a previous production several years ago you allowed this to happen, as Israeli " students" are all post army service.  Can you once again confirm your permission to perform? 

Thank you for your efforts

In the information on the website for the orchestration it is just listed as "bass" doubling for "acoustic bass". So do I need to have an upright string bass or an electric bass guitar?
