30 SEPTEMBER - 2 OCTOBER
A once in a lifetime celebration of the creators of Les Misérables, Miss Saigon and more.
It is fifty years since Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg first met and began a collaboration that would change the course of musical theatre history with their musicals Les Misérables and Miss Saigon.
This September, leading stars from Broadway, the West End, France, Korea and Australia will gather to celebrate these unparalleled musicals and their writers in Do You Hear The People Sing? They will be joined by a 24-piece orchestra and an ensemble of twelve singers.
This extraordinary event is headlined by Michael Ball (Les Misérables, Aspects of Love, Sweeney Todd) with John Owen-Jones (Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera), Rachel Tucker (The Pirate Queen, Come From Away, Wicked), Bobby Fox (Assassins, Blood Brothers, Jersey Boys), David Harris (Moulin Rouge, Priscilla, Miss Saigon), Sooha Kim (Miss Saigon, Rent, Hadestown), Suzie Mathers (Wicked, Barnum, Mamma Mia) and Marie Zamora (Barnum, Kiss Me Kate, Les Misérables).
The definitive celebration of the work of Boublil & Schönberg, Do You Hear The People Sing? includes not only hits from Les Misérables and Miss Saigon but also Martin Guerre, The Pirate Queen and their very first musical together, La Révolution Française. This concert was created by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and is the only celebration of their work that the duo has ever authorised.
Don’t miss it!
