Pure joy amidst
this difficult time.

Bringing back such
of the best cast ever.
I can’t stop crying
So I’ve bought the
Les Misérables concert,
the title flashed up and I’m in tears. Oh my god.
Just finished Les Misérables: The Staged Concert -
and even better that it’s
raising money for the NHS.
A very happy nurse right here

For every digital download purchased (RRP £9.99) The Mackintosh Foundation will separately donate £5.00 to be shared amongst the charities Acting for Others, the Musicians’ Union Coronavirus Hardship Fund and Captain Tom Moore’s Walk for the NHS fund*. In addition, Mackintosh has launched the fundraising today by donating £100,000 from his Foundation.
Cameron Mackintosh said:
“I am delighted that Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group is releasing Les Misérables -The Staged Concert as a digital download at this time of crisis as it also allows my Foundation to help raise much needed funds for particular charities that are under such pressure at the moment. Alongside the concert we will also be releasing a specially created mini documentary “Bringing it Home” which includes footage of the stars at their homes talking about their experiences both of live theatre and the show plus never seen before backstage footage that wonderfully captures the humour, camaraderie and thrill of performing to live audiences in these hauntingly beautiful and exciting historic buildings. In these extraordinary times we hope that fans and everyone who loves the theatre will be reminded of how special a theatrical experience can be, going to the very heart of our British culture, which make our nation so special and unique. I am exceptionally proud of everyone involved in the making of the Concert and very much hope my Foundation will be able to help a raise a considerable amount of money for these deserving charities.”
*The digital download of the Staged Concert is available in the UK and Australia. It will be available in North America from 4 August 2020. For the first 80,000 downloads in the UK, the Mackintosh Foundation is donating £5 split between 3 charities – Acting for Others, The Musicians Union Benevolent Fund and Captain Tom Moore’s Walk for the NHS. Please note that once 80,000 downloads have been achieved, the charitable donation information will be removed from this website and we will announce how much money our fans have helped raise for these wonderful charities.
