Les Miserables

Tickets for Cameron Mackintosh's production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, Les Miserables, are currently on sale for its return engagement on Philadelphia's Kimmel Cultural Campus, November 2 through November 13, 2022 at the historic Academy of Music.

"Seen by over 130 million people in 53 countries and 22 languages, Les Miserables is undisputedly one of the world's most popular musicals," said Matías Tarnopolsky, president and CEO of The Philadelphia Orchestra and Kimmel Center, Inc. "Philadelphia also loves Les Miserables. We look forward to welcoming fans to the 12th presentation of this beloved musical."

Cameron Mackintosh said, "The phenomenon of Les Miserables never fails to astound me. No show in history has been able to continually reinvent itself and remain a contemporary musical attracting new generations of brilliant new talent, many of whom go on to international stardom. No show in the world has ever demonstrated the survival of the human spirit better than Les Miz, and it's time to let the people sing again. We are all thrilled to be Bringing Her Home to you."

Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Les Miserables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.

Boublil & Schönberg's magnificent score of Les Miserables includes the classic songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Bring Him Home," "Do You Hear The People Sing?," "One Day More," "Master of the House," and many more.

Cora Jane Messer and Hazel Vogel alternate in the role of 'Little Cosette/Young Éponine.' Harrison Fox and Gabriel Lafazan alternate in the role of 'Gavroche.'

It is currently on tour in the UK and Ireland, and a new tour of The Netherlands is set for early 2023 with further productions to be announced.
