I have a confession. Before this week, I’d never seen Les Miserables. Nope, not even the award winning movie. Tuesday that changed however and I was able to see the amazing new production by Cameron Mackintosh (of Mary Poppins and Oliver! fame) and it made the wait so worth it.
Based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo, Les Miserables is a bold and beautiful story set in revolutionary 19th century France evoking the many spectrums of the human spirit.
A stellar cast bring the classic story to life, leaving you fully invested in the characters and amazed at their live performance talent.
Highlights were Lara Mulcahy as Madame Thénardier and Kerrie Anne Greenland’s Éponine.
The Capitol Theatre is the perfect venue for the Australian production of Les Miserables giving you a genuinely mesmerising experience of such a classically beautiful story.
The official opening is tonight (Thursday 26 March, 2014) with tickets available from Ticketmaster.
