Jean Valjean: sings to B (high lyric baritone or tenor with strong low notes), a poor peasant who rises to affluence, has great natural nobility and dignity, a powerful figure with a character of operatic size and passion, the voice needs to have a pop/rock sound or a classical sound of extraordinary textual clarity.
Javert: baritone, sings to G, a policeman who relentlessly hunts Valjean, the ultimate "law and order" figure, obsessed, to the point of irrationality, with a rigid and merciless moral code, both belt voice and classical with a darker quality than Jean Valjean.
Thenardier: strong comic character role, a crooked innkeeper, later a petty, amoral thief, greedy, irreverent, selfish, boorish, vulgar, baritone, sings to F sharp.
Marius: high baritone (sings to A) with a strong bottom (to A), a member of the revolutionary student movement, attractive and romantic.
Fantine: belt up to C, sings to E flat, a poor factory girl, struggling to support her fatherless daughter
Cosette: Fantine’s daughter, delicate, elegant, vulnerable, and beautiful, falls in love with and later marries Marius, soprano (to high C)
Eponine: a big, beautiful belt voice (to C in belt; sings to E flat), the daughter of the Thenardiers, but in no way behaves like them, fired by an unrequited love for Marius, small, waif-like, hasn't learned to disguise her emotions, wears her heart on her sleeve.
Madame Thenardier: tough, sharp, coarse, boorish, vulgar, strong character comedienne role, belter
Enjorlas: high baritone (to G sharp/A), very strong singer, a charismatic political figure, the leader of the revolutionary movement.
