Les Misérables by Tim Hooper( Visual )

In post-revolutionary France, Jean Valjean is paroled after serving 19 years in prison for stealing bread. Unable to find work as an ex-convict, he steals silver from a church. When he is caught and brought back, the bishop forgives him, instructing Valjean to use the silver to begin a new life. After breaking parole to do so, nine years later Valjean is a wealthy industrialist and mayor. This success comes at high price-- he is hunted by ruthless policeman Javert, his former prison guard. When Valjean comes across a woman being arrested by his old nemesis Javert, Valjean intervenes, risking discovery. When Valjean learns that the woman, Fantine, turned to prostitution after losing her position at his factory because she has a child, he befriends Fantine, even agreeing to care for her daughter, Cosette. The decision changes their lives forever

Les misérables : the original London cast by Claude-Michel Schönberg( Recording )

9 editions published between 1199 and 2004 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Victor Hugo's epic story, which follows the life of Jean Valjean, has a depth of vision, a compassion and a veracity that have ensured its place as one of the great works of European literature. Set largely in Paris against a background of revolution and political unrest, it centres on the underdogs or outcasts of society, in particular Valjean. Once a hardened criminal, Valjean has repented his crimes, but is nevertheless pursued by the implacable detective Javert. In scenes of unforgettable dramatic power, Valjean is chased through the sewers of Paris, while the July Revolution rages on."
