Where Every Family Matters

‘Les Misérables’ Returns to TPAC

Travel back to 19th century France and "hear the people sing" as this acclaimed musical returns Jan. 10 - 15.

Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, Les Misérables, returns to Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall Jan. 10 – 15, 2023.

Set against the backdrop of 19th century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption — a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Seen by more than 130 million people worldwide in 53 countries and 22 languages, this epic story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. 

Boublil & Schönberg’s score includes the classic songs: “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Bring Him Home,” “Do You Hear The People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Master of the House” and many more. 

“The phenomenon of Les Misérables never fails to astound me,” says Mackintosh. “No show in history has been able to continually reinvent itself and remain a contemporary musical attracting new generations of brilliant new talent, many of whom go on to international stardom. No show in the world has ever demonstrated the survival of the human spirit better than Les Miz, and it’s time to let the people sing again.”
