Paris 1832. Angry crowds swarm in the street.
A tinder box atmosphere. Jean Valjean, a fugitive from the law,
has transformed himself from petty criminal to wealthy industrialist
and moral guardian of a child - Cosette. Relentlessly pursued
by the obsessive Inspector Javert, Valjean attempts to save his
precious new world from discovery and ruin. How can he protect
Cosette and still maintain his new identity? How can he stand
the pain of parting if her safety and happiness depend on it?
With live music influenced by Breton Folk and Urban Jazz, Red Shift's Les Miserables combined the essence of 19th century France with the colours, anger and energy of contemporary street culture.
