The new film version of a classic French saga, Les Miserables, is proving to be a spectacular success after being nominated for 8 Oscars and 9 BAFTAs. Favourite to win in several categories, it has already been decorated with several Golden Globe awards for its production and cast.
Former musical theatre actor Hugh Jackman is joined by Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway in an exciting film musical that, unusually, does not rely on its stars lip-syncing to recordings of their voices. Instead, the cast sang live on-set, recapturing the intensity of live performance and the musical’s theatrical origins.
Newmarket Holidays’ theatre product team believe that this new, cinematic incarnation will renew enthusiasm for the much-loved London stage musical. Despite mixed initial reviews from critics, theatre audiences have flocked to see it since its sell-out opening run back in 1985. This magical, award-winning show has run continuously in London ever since.
Adapted from the classic novel by Victor Hugo and set in 19th-century France, the tragic, moving story of idealistic young revolutionaries and a convict’s quest for redemption has now been seen by 60 million people worldwide. The London stage version was developed by legendary theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2010. Members of its cast have featured actor Michael Ball, tenor Alfie Boe and Little Britain’s Matt Lucas.
