Based on the popular novel by Victor Hugo, the musical Les Misérables tells the story of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict who dreams of liberation in 19th-century France. After spending 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread for his family, he’s conditionally released. Permanently scarred by his past, Valjean, now marginalised in society, can’t find a job to earn a living and so he returns to crime. 

But the appearance of a kind-hearted bishop encourages him to reflect on the meaning of life and makes him start a new life, where he tries to do good and help everyone who needs it. This new identity is threatened by inspector Javert, a man who’s dedicated his entire life to obeying the law and who’ll never forget his prisoner number 24601.
