Yes, you can now grab Les Miserables tickets here at Ticketbis, with the French novel turned musical now having made it to the Australian shores! Known colloquially as Les Miz, the musical originally made to Broadway and the West End in the mid eighties, when after debuting in Paris the show became such a success that an English-language version soon became high in demand, with the task undertaken by lyricist Herbert Kretzmer, with additional work from celebrated poet James Fenton! So don’t miss out the chance to get your Les Miserables tickets and you’ll see exactly why this show is such an important part of the theatrical repertoire!
The work was actually expanded and reworked from the literal translation provided Siobhan Bracke, who also added a prologue telling Jean Valjean’s backstory! However, for those who like a real run-down of what they’re going to see, we at Ticketbis are more than happy to provide this service, without spoiling anything in the process! Split into two acts, the story chronicles the life of French Peasant Jean Valjean who, after serving nineteen years in jail for stealing a loaf of bread, breaks his parole and endeavours to start a new life. Of course, it’s not that easy with police inspector Javert doggedly hunting the Valjean, the two of them are inevitably swept up in the revolutionary period of France, along with a slew of other endearing characters! With the entire show, written in song there’s no doubting the impression this show leaves with you!
Reviews for the show are already proving popular with critics and theatre goers alike! One particularly shining review of Les Miserables by Crikey.com.au, lauds the fact that this is one musical that has been ingrained within our societal conscious, and as a result the sheer atmosphere of the show is enough to attend! The musical has it all, tragedy, romance, unrequited love, self-sacrifice, class struggle, loyalty, friendship... the list goes on! And actors, Simon Gleeson and Hayden Tee do a tremendous job in playing their respective roles as Valjean and Javert, while Patrice Tipoki, Kerri Anne Greenland, Emily Langrdidge and Euan Doidge all prove more than competent in their roles!
