30 years ago today, the first English production of Les Miserables opened at the Barbican Arts Centre. Tonight, after three decades, the cast will take to the stage of The Queen’s Theatre in the West End for a special performance in aid of Save in Children in Syria.
To celebrate this milestone, the current stellar cast will be joined onstage by members of the original company and special guests including Colm Wilkinson, Roger Allam, Frances Ruffelle, Alfie Boe, John Owen-Jones and Gerónimo Rauch in a special finale.
‘Les Miserables’ originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985. It transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 where it ran for 19 years before moving to its current home at the Queen’s Theatre on 3 April 2004.
Seen by nearly 70 million people worldwide in 44 countries and in 22 languages, ‘Les Miserables’ is one of the world’s most popular musicals ever written, with new productions continually opening around the globe. Seven more are currently scheduled.
