Les Miserables School Edition

Les Misérables School Edition is a version of the classic musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, based on the novel by Victor Hugo. The music is by Claude-Michel Schönberg, with lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer. The show features original French text by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel, with additional material by James Fenton. It is adapted by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, with original orchestrations by John Cameron, new orchestrations by Christopher Jahnke, Stephen Metcalfe and Stephen Booker.
This epic story of Les Misérables recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes an honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father – violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean’s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed.
Les Misérables School Edition has a running time of just over two and a half hours (including intermission).
