Les Misérables

Les Misérables
The epic tale of broken dreams, passion and redemption is set against a nation in the throes of revolution.

Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 65 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit. This true modern classic is based on Victor Hugo's novel and features one of the most memorable scores of all time.

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe that Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean finally attains the peace that he has sought for so long.

Epic, grand and uplifting, Les Misérables packs an emotional wallop that has thrilled audiences all over the world. The sung-through pop opera is ideal for a cast of exceptional singers and overflows with melodies that are already standards. A spectacle on Broadway and in London, Les Misérables is equally effective with a minimal set; it is its powerful affirmation of the human spirit that has made Les Misérables a popular masterpiece.

Les Miserables

I received a survey from a local, large scale theater in my state asking for patron input for shows their audience would prefer seeing out of a list of musicals. Les Mierables was on that list. My question is, can this be interpreted that the amateur rights to Les Miserables will be released in 2021? I also see that Hale Centre Theatre in Utah is currently producing Les Miserables. Is this also a pre-cursor to the rights being released next year?

How can I obtain the rights to perform a song?

Hello,

My name is Madison Unruh and I was curious as to how to obtain rights to perform a song from Les Miserables to perform at state in December. My group was wanting to perform "A Heart Full of Love / In My Life" at the annual Colorado Thespian Conference this year, and I'm not sure who to talk to to obtain rights for this song, if possible. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
