Les Miserables musical tickets
Les Miserables musical will be held on 3/1/2011 - 3/6/2011 at Hippodrome Performing Arts Center in Baltimore, MD. Les Miserables is a musical composed in 1980 by French composer Claude-Michel Schönberg with a libretto by Alain Boublil, and lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer. On October 8, 2006, the show celebrated its 21st anniversary on London's West End and became the longest-running West End musical with 9,500 performances. The production continues at London's Queen's Theatre. The show is now in its 25th year. It is currently the 3rd longest-running show in Broadway history and the longest-running show in musical theatre history. Based on Victor Hugo's 1862 novel of the same name, set in early 19th-century France, the plot follows the stories of the characters as they struggle for redemption and revolution. The lead characters are joined by an ensemble that includes prostitutes, student revolutionaries, factory workers, and others. The Tony Award-winning score features the song "I Dreamed a Dream", sung as a solo by the character Fantine during the first act. Numerous professional artists have recorded cover versions of this song since the musical's premiere in October 1985, including Neil Diamond, Aretha Franklin, David Essex, Susan Boyle, Michael Crawford and most recently as a duet between Idina Menzel and Lea Michele on the television show Glee.
