2010 marked the 25th anniversary year for Les Misérables.
Les Misérables is now the longest running musical in the world and in October 2010, celebrated its 25th anniversary with a theatrical first – three different productions of the same musical staged at the same time in one city – the star-studded concerts at The O2, the acclaimed new 25th Anniversary Production (which completed its sell-out UK Tour at London’s Barbican Theatre) and the original production, which continues its record breaking run at the Queen’s Theatre, London.
The New 25th Anniversary Production has been a huge hit all over again, currently breaking box office records across North America and in Australia, with an Asian Tour and other productions due to open worldwide in South America, Korea, Japan, Spain over the next three years.
32,000 people attended the sell-out O2 Concerts, which were also relayed to cinemas worldwide and subsequently released on DVD and Blu-ray.
If you didn’t get a chance to join us live at The O2 or at cinema screenings nationwide on 3 October 2010, there are still lots of ways you can re-live the magic of the Concert.
The live recording of this extraordinary event is an awe-inspiring spectacle, with a phenomenal international star cast and a company of over 500 artists and musicians.
