Les Miserables

Les Misérables is a legendary French historical novel by the writer and poet Victor Hugo, first published in 1862. Many think it's one of the finest novels of the 1800s. Set in early 19th-century France, it tells the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption. An emotional rollercoaster, it'll have you in tears of joy... and tears of sorrow.

Valjean is on parole, having just served a brutal 19 years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread for his sister and her child, both of whom were starving to death. He decides to break his parole agreement and start fresh, but the horribly persistent Inspector Javert just won't let go. Valjean is swept unwittingly into the revolution, and the group of young idealists he has hooked up with are forced to take their last stand behind a barricade in the streets.

The rousing, unforgettable show tunes come from the pen of the brilliant Claude-Michel Schönberg. The original French lyrics come courtesy of Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel. And the English libretto is by Herbert Kretzmer. The London production has been on stage non-stop since October 1985 and is the second longest-running musical on the planet. Enough said – go see it!

one of a kind, speechless, so incredibly amazing!
Ella Kate, 27 Jul 2022
First musical we watched in the UK
We booked last minute tickets to Les Mis. Even though our ticket weren't the best in the house, we still enjoyed every second of it. We could see most of the stage and really didn't feel like we missed out on better seats. The vocals were incredible and the stage design was brilliant.
Dorette, 25 Jul 2022
Suberb!!!
Mind blowing theatrical and musical performances
Anastasia, 23 Jul 2022

Superb singing
Timothy, 22 Jul 2022
Very good
The show was brilliant , it was wife’s 50th birthday surprise, there was a few things, The staff walking about in out , there way a guy filming the staff did see him , and made a note of the seat number , but they where back and forth in first performance, the person in front of me restricted my view slightly, and the people slightly over to the left had crisps they must have been hungry it went on for a long time ,
Andrew, 17 Jul 2022
Perfect
It’s up normal show you will feel an actual movie with the musical showing
Hamad, 11 Jul 2022

LES MISERABLES -SONDHIEM THEATRE
MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THIS OPERA PERFORMANCE AND THE MUSIC WAS SUPERD ALONG WITH THE ACTORS. GETTING TO THE GRAND CIRCLE CAN BE A BIT CONFUSING BUT IF YOU GET LOSS IN TRYING TO FIND IT YOU CAN GET AN UNGUIDED TOUR OF THE THEATRE WHICH IS WHAT HAPPENED TO US,WE WERE TOLD TO GO UP THE STAIRS AND THEN TOLD TO GO DOWN THE STAIRS AND ENDED UP IN THE STALLS AND THEN TOLD TO GO TO THE FOYER AGAIN AND THEN TO GO UP THE STAIRS AGAIN - MAYBE SOMEONE SHOULD STAND IN THE FOYER AND NOT AT THE FRONT DOOR AND TELL PEOPLE THE PROPER STAIRS TO TAKE!! BUT I LOVED THE WEE TOUR THAT WE TOOK, VERY INTERESTING AND LOVED IT, THE TOILETS CAN BE ALSO ANNOYINGLY DIFFICULT TO GET TOO GENTS ON ONE SIDE AND LADIES ON THE OTHER SIDE, IF IN THE CIRLCE YOU HAVE TO GO TOT THE TOP OF THE CIRCLE CROSS OVER THE BACK AND THEN DOWN THE STEPS AGAIN. BUT OVERALL A GREAT SHOW AND LOVED IT THANK YOU
David, 08 Jul 2022
Les Miz never disappoints
We are regular theatre goers and have seen Les Miserable on more than one occasion, both in Sydney and London. It was simply amazing and of course we’ll be back again soon.
Jason, 07 Jul 2022
The design of each scene was just amazing!
Geniunely I didn't expect it to be so good! I wish I have seen this show before, I loved the coloring, lighting, decoration of the stage and mostly the voice of the actors was somethingelse honestly, such an effort. I have seen so many London musicals, and this show now in one of my first 3 to suggest.
Muge, 05 Jul 2022
Unbelievably great show!
What a great, great show and suberb cast! After so many years (and I’ve seen the show many times in different counters since 1989) a show of such great quality is really phenomenal! The decor was a bit different (simpler) from earlier shows, but that’s probably due to the smaller theatre. It didn’t take anytjing off the really nice experience. The singing was extremely great! I had a set with ‘very restrictief view’ but I’d say: ‘slightly restricted’. Absolutely phenomenal and I recommend it to all lovers of serious musicals!
Jolanda, 04 Jul 2022

Sarah, 18 Jun 2022
I first saw Les Miserables about 25 yrs ago. Was just as good today. Still reduced me to tears! Thank you
Clare, 18 Jun 2022
Perfect
Robert, 15 Jun 2022
Always a joy...
Most recent visit, maybe the 5th time I have seen this show, the last time being more than 5 years ago. I think there have been a few very minor tweaks to the dialogue over the years but nothing detracts from the quality of the musical score and the ability of the production to generate empathy and sometimes humour. I didn’t consider that the show’s current home at the Sondheim Theatre (one of the smaller West End theatres?) constrained it in any significant way. For me the running time may be a shade over long but there's a reason it has endured as long as it has. It’s brilliant!
Robert, 09 Jun 2022
Bravo!!
Paula, 09 Jun 2022
Great Experience For My 1st West End Show
Great singers. Amazing sets. Orchestra sounded so good was like listening to a score in a THX Theatre.
Leon, 05 Jun 2022
Very enjoyable, peaceful quiet location, yet within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars
Gerardette, 05 Jun 2022
Loved it from the opening note to the end!!
Lorraine, 30 May 2022
Brilliant
Loved the show. Grew up being part of musicals as my dad was a musician that played in the band. Suggestion 1. Did not know the story or the length of the show. Was not sure if the interval was an interval or the end of the show. People could make a mistake 2) small detail - when Epina died and was lifted up she actually lifted her torso up before she was lifted.
Vernon, 30 May 2022
classic that holds its own
Still exciting, still gives you chills - this was my first time watching it, but they'll be more (with better seats hopefully...)
Diomedes, 29 May 2022

Fantastic show! Must see!

Marte, 16 May 2022
Fantastic!
There is no words to describe the play! Fantastic!
Theodoros, 15 May 2022
A classic show!
Brilliant show but would advise seeing a short synopsis of the story first to help follow some of time jumps between scenes.
Richard, 14 May 2022
Awesome!
A very different feel from what I experienced when I last watched it in Singapore. The music arrangement differs but simply awesome. Never forget experience.
Irene, 14 May 2022
One of the classics... still amazing!
Devy, 14 May 2022
Incredible Must See
I can’t do the cast justice but definitely a must see. Absolutely beautiful show.
Niamh, 12 May 2022
Stunning, emotional performances and writing.
Very hard to find fault. Visually bewildering. Emotionally stirring. Incredible talent on display. If I had to find fault I probably could but I would have to work very hard.
Jamie, 11 May 2022
Absolutely wonderful I expected it to be good but it surpassed everything. Loved it.
Lynne, 08 May 2022

OKAY+
Vinjar, 05 May 2022
Completely wonderful!
There can't be many left who haven't already seen this amazing show, but if you haven't, book now! it is completely wonderful. It usually has me in tears before the end of the first half, continuing through the second half. I have seen it many times but I never tire and can never believe how fantastic it is. The best show in London!
Thomas, 26 Apr 2022
Super
Alexander, 24 Apr 2022
Wonderful 最高
何より役者さんが上手。主役はもちろんのこと、脇役もそれぞれ皆素晴らしく、言葉を全て理解出来なくても、笑ったり泣いたりできる演出です。
Aki, 23 Apr 2022
Still fab
We watched the film during lock down so really wanted to see the musical. The new staging is very effective.
Susan, 22 Apr 2022
Never get bored of it!
It should be more available cost wise to younger families, single mother parents and teenagers.
Emma, 20 Apr 2022
Do not be afraid!
Travelled from Shropshire. Just over an hour by train. Short taxi ride and then at our hotel. Time to potter around the area, early dinner and taxi to the show. Nothing beats a live performance. Rickshaw back to the hotel, cheese and wine and then bed. WE WILL BE BACK! Thank you
Rob, 19 Apr 2022

Lenka, 18 Apr 2022
Well performed, well staged

Very professional performance great entertainment
I had no expectations as I am not a great lover of musical theatre but I was very pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I now see why this is such a popular and infamous production.
Peter, 09 Apr 2022
Missed it? Your loss
Hugo, 31 Mar 2022
As a musician I enjoyed it alot
Samira, 31 Mar 2022
Fantastic performance
Jena, 30 Mar 2022
Timeless
Hugo said once that if he only wrote for his time that he might as well break his pen in half. He was right. This story has a universal application. The singing and dancing was powerful and the acting was an emotional roller coaster. The Sondheim Theatre presents a magical experience for a wonderful, memorable play.
Gregory, 28 Mar 2022
A stunning performance and grand set design
Annabel, 25 Mar 2022
A new version
This version was not as rich as the old version and it appeared hurried.
Nick, 24 Mar 2022
This is the third time i've seen Les Mis and it never lets you down. The music, the stage, the costumes and of course the singing is fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone to go and see
Sandra, 21 Mar 2022
Incredible
Brian, 20 Mar 2022
Really enjoyed it!

De très belles voix au service de l’un des plus grands Musicals

Amazing show!!!
Raul, 14 Mar 2022
The essential London theatre ticket
For theatre lovers, Les Mis is as much a part of a London visit as seeing Big Ben. I’ve seen it 3 times over the past decade, and the cast and production values are always first-rate. The staging has become more imaginative and sophisticated, but the core stays true to the storytelling and makes for a powerful experience. Somehow, Les Mis always feels relevant…this time as Ukraine is under siege. The only drawback is the seating — surprisingly still old-fashioned uncomfortable and cramped seats with disappointing views, even from some of the priciest stalls.
Charlotte, 14 Mar 2022
Think you know Le Mis. think again !
The total restaging of the show has made it a brand new and much improved experience. I have seen the show 6 times and this was the very best performance and staging that I have seen because it brought out new ways of seeing the same scene that made it a totally new experience.
CLIVE, 11 Mar 2022
Fantastic from start to finish
We thoroughly enjoyed the new staging of Les Miserables. Javert's death is astounding.
Eddy, 11 Mar 2022
A MUST SEE
MY FIRST TIME SEEING LES MIS A THEATRE VERSION AS I HAVNT SEEN OTHER THEATRE PERFORMANCES WITH THE SAME SHOW ITS HARD TO COMMENT , BUT I MUST COMMENT ON ALL THE CAST HARD WORK ,THE ORCHESTRA AND BEHIND THE SCENES ALL INVOLVED . THE ONLY THING I WOULD COMMENT ON WAS THE LIGHTING WAS A LITTLE DARK AT TIMES DIFFICULT TO MAKE OUT THE CARICATURE PERFORMING. THE GUYS HAD MAGNIFICENT VOICES AND THE LADIES TO , I THOUGHT THAT THE LADY WHO PLAYED COSETTE WAS A LITTLE TIMID AND QUIET BUT SHE WAS SWEET BT MAYBE THAT WAS HER CARICATURE ,THE CHILDREN WHO PERFORMANCE WERE AMAZING , THANK-YOU ALL FOR A MEMORABLE EVENING
ERIC, 10 Mar 2022
