London's Les Misérables is the world's longest running musical, with adaptations being performed to over 60 million people worldwide. Following a complex tale of love, honour and rebellion in early 19th Century France, Les Misérables focuses the French peasant Jean Valjean, who has served 19 years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread. When he breaks his parole to star his life afresh, Javert, a police inspector, mercilessly hunts him on a perilous journey through France. But Valjean is adamant on redeeming himself and becomes part of a town community, eventually becoming Mayor. There, he is responsible for the downfall of Fantine, and promises to care for her daughter Cosette as her dying wish. This decision changes both Valjean and Cosette’s lives forever, but Javert is always close on their trail. Told through impressive, heart-wrenching song, Les Misérables features well-known songs such as "One Day More", "Do You Hear the People Sing", "On My Own" and "I Dreamed a Dream".
