Les Miserables
08/1/2014
Discover a nation in the grip of revolution, where convict Jean Valjean is on the run. Hunted relentlessly by the policeman Javert for breaking his parole, he must leave his past behind and keep his vow to raise the young orphaned Cosette. But with revolution in the air and Javert closing in, Jean Valjean has no choice but to fight for his life and sacrifice everything to protect the people he loves. Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables, a sung-through pop opera, is a powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made it a popular masterpiece. Directed by Jason Rinehart, Conducted by Deborah Chandler.
