MIDAS is proud to present its production of Les Misérables.
Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister’s starving child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert. Along the way, Valjean and a slew of characters are swept into a revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.
Filled with musical numbers that are modern-day classics such as ‘On my own’, ‘I dreamed a dream’, ‘Master of the house’, ‘One day more’, and the famous anthem ‘Do you hear the people sing?’, this is an epic musical tale of injustice, love, loss and freedom.
