See Les Miserables at the Birmingham Hippodrome
Do you hear the people sing? Have you dreamed a dream in time gone by? Well, that dream can become a reality when the smash-hit production of Les Miserables arrives in Birmingham next year.
A fresh tour of the iconic musical will hit the Birmingham Hippodrome stage in 2020, playing from 30th June to 18th July.
Hot off the heels of a sell-out run, Les Miserables brings the emotion, the drama and the rebellion to Birmingham. One of the world’s most popular and beloved musicals, it brings to life the famous novel written by Victor Hugo. It tells a story of love, loss, and liberty through different iconic characters in early 19th century revolutionary France.
From Jean Valjean, a French peasant sentenced to 19 years imprisonment for stealing a loaf of bread, to Fantine, a factory worker thrown into poverty upon the discovery of an illegitimate child, Les Miserables showcases the trials and tribulations of the French people during a turbulent time.
It delivers a score that has transcended the genre of musical theatre to become part of mainstream pop culture. As Les Miserables sounds out the Hippodrome, you’ll hear familiar songs that still remain incredibly fresh and relevant. Songs like ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ and ‘One Day More’ have been reproduced by many famous singers. But witnessing them in the show is a totally different experience, allowing you to truly appreciate their power and impact.
Running from 1985 to 2019, Les Mis holds the record for longest ever running musical in the West End. Upon celebrating its 25th anniversary, producer Cameron Mackintosh introduced new imagery inspired by Les Miserables novelist Victor Hugo’s works. You can now watch the modern adaptation as it leaves London and travels around the UK.
You may have seen the film, but there’s nothing quite like feeling the full force of Les Mis on stage. So don’t miss your chance to witness one of the best theatrical experiences in the world in your city. Tickets for Les Miserables in Birmingham are available now.
