Les Misérables School Edition features one of the most memorable scores of all time and some of the most beloved characters to ever grace the stage. Winner of over 100 international awards, this musical phenomenon is an epic tale of redemption. Les Mis follows repentant-criminal, Jean Valjean, in his lifelong struggle to live out his redemption amidst the turmoil of 19th-century France. Relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert whose legalistic mind demands justice be served, he and Valjean clash throughout the show in a spiritual struggle between God’s Grace and The Law.
Les Mis is peppered with glorious characters: Virtuous Fantine, struggling to provide for her sick daughter; Feisty Eponine, whose love for Marius goes unrequited as he pines for the more refined Cosette; Enjolras, passionate leader of the student revolutionaries; and the thieving Thenardiers who roam the streets of France looking for their next big score. All the debauchery of Valjean’s France beautifully highlights his goodness as he maneuvers the landscape as Christ’s follower, being “in the world but not of the world”.
Grand and uplifting, Les Misérables School Edition is the perfect witness of a redeemed life lived to the glory of our Blessed Savior.
