Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, Les Miserables is one of the longest-running musicals in the West End and tells the story of Jean Valjean after his release from prison.
After befriending the Bishop of Digne, Jean repays his kindness by stealing a pair of candlesticks. Jean then tries to turn his life around whilst staying one step ahead of the ruthless policeman Javert.
This all-star show will recreate the legendary concert that was originally shown at the Royal Albert Hall. It stars Michael Ball as Javert, Alfie Boe as Jean and Carrie Hope Fletcher as Fantine. Other performers include Matt Lucas, Katy Secombe and John Owen-Jones.
