The Capitol Theatre is abuzz ahead of opening night on March 26 and there is much hype and excitement around the arrival of Les Miserables in Sydney.

Based on the 1862 Victor Hugo novel, Les Miserables burst onto the stage in 1985 and has been smashing records and delighting audiences ever since. The novel is renowned as a literary masterpiece and Mackintosh’s musical adaptation enjoys an equally lofty reputation.

Les Miserables shares a very special bond with Sydney; the city holds the record for the largest attendance for a single live performance of the musical. In 1989, more than 125,000 people attended an Australia Day performance of Les Miserables – a feat that will be difficult to beat any time soon.

The production is one of the longest-running musicals in history and has been performed all over the world. In fact, Les Miserables has played in 319 cities in 42 countries and has been translated into 22 different languages. The musical has been performed professionally more than 48,000 times with an international audience in excess of 60 million.

The numbers are simply staggering. The popularity of Les Miserables is testament to the quality of the production. The story, soundtrack, cast, crew, costumes and sets are all world-class and have to be seen to be believed.

Les Miserables features a first-class cast of talented performers including Simon Gleeson as Jean Valjean, Patrice Tipoki in the role of Fantine and Hayden Tee as Javert. Eponine is played by Kerrie Anne Greenland with Emily Langridge bringing Cosette to life on stage.
