The Story behind Les Miserables
Les Miserables tells the tale of Jean Valjean, a man who was sentenced to 19 years of hard labor in a French prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. Valjean is eventually released on parole by a police officer named Javert. Upon his release, Valjean steals from a bishop who takes him in and provides him with food and shelter. When the bishop lies about the theft to save Valjean, the ex-prisoner then runs away to establish a new life for himself with a new identity.
In his new life, Valjean becomes a wealthy factory owner and mayor of his city. The story moves to some of the workers in his factory, including a single mother Fantine and her daughter Cosette.
Throughout the tale, beautiful music written by French composer Claude-Michel Schonberg illustrates the many emotions of love, grief and despair that run rampant through the story. Ultimately, the story shows the importance of true love, courage and ultimate redemption to the characters that the audience grows to love – and hate – throughout the show.
