Les MisÚrables by the Young Australian Broadway Chorus gets a standing ovation on the opening night
Based in 19th century France during the French revolution, a convict (who stole a loaf of bed to save his starving nephews) breaks his parole to start a new honest life. However the law does not believe in second chances...
Les MisÚrables by the Young Australian Broadway Chorus
With an ensemble of over 100 young people, all aged between 8 and 21yrs including the cast and orchestra, this incredible production successfully performs one of the most complex scores in musical theatre.

The note perfect 16-piece orchestra was conducted by musical director Justin Jacobs, seeing the breathtaking harmonies of over 100 people brought a new depth to an already sensational show.
Rhea Brandish performed an outstanding rendition of On My Own, while Bryce Gibsons played the role of Jean Valjean to perfection.
As a huge fan of Les MisÚrables, I am lucky enough to have seen different productions of the musical in various countries around the world. Last night's performance was another dimension to anything that I have ever seen before.
I'm going to go as far as saying this is the best production of Les Mis I've ever seen. I can't believe the talent of these incredible kids.
For any musical fan I strongly urge you to "hear these people sing", before "tomorrow comes".
Note: Les MisÚrables is a long production; over 3 hours. This musical is best suited to children over 12yrs with a passion for musical theatre.
