'Les Misérables' is Finally Coming to Manila in March 2016!


Do You Hear The People Sing?: 'Les Misérables' is finally coming to Manila in March 2016!

Here's the latest theater scoop: Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production of Boublil & Schönberg's legendary musical, 'Les Misérables', will launch the Asian tour in Manila in March 2016 with tickets going on sale this September 29, 2015 (Tuesday). It'll be another first for our theater loving country, as we soon welcome this production in Manila for the very first time through Concertus Manila.

Having celebrated triumphant seasons in Melbourne, Perth and currently playing in Sydney, Cameron Mackintosh is thrilled to bring the production to Manila.

"The new production is currently in its second year on Broadway, having broken box office records across America and in Canada for over three years, with separate companies in Japan, Korea, Spain and currently a huge success in Australia sweeping all the top awards," Cameron Mackintosh said, "After its Sydney and Brisbane run, I’m delighted to be bringing this new version to Manila in March, with a wonderful cast that include the current London star playing Fantine, acclaimed Philippine actress Rachelle Ann Go – who received enormous acclaim when I took her to London to appear as ‘Gigi’ in my hugely successful new production of ‘Miss Saigon’. Over the last twenty-five years I have had a wonderfully rewarding relationship with Filipino talent, introducing the best of them to audiences around the world – so I’m thrilled that this time one of my productions can be seen in its full splendor in Manila.”

Joining Rachelle Ann Go, following his recent Australian Helpmann Award win as the iconic ‘Jean Valjean’ is Simon Gleeson. Valjean’s lifelong antagonist ‘Javert’ will be played by Earl Carpenter, direct from his performance of the role in the Broadway company of Les Misérables.

One of the world’s greatest musicals, this new production of the much-loved blockbuster features glorious modernised staging, orchestrations and dazzlingly reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo. Theater geeks, mark your calendars and book your tickets on September 29th, as this new version of Les Misérables is not to be missed.

Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed new production Les Misérables will have its Manila run at The Theatre at Solaire from March 2016.
