”’Les Miz’ delivers — beautiful melodies and unbridled emotions”
The story focuses on Jean Valjean, convicted for stealing bread and hunted down by the policeman Javert after breaking parole. When Valjean agrees to care for Cosette, the daughter of factory worker Fantine, his life changes entirely. Les Miserables is a tale of love, sacrifice and redemption, a tale of poverty and anguish in the face of unbearable oppression, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution.
