About this Recording

HUGO, V.: Miserables (Les) (Abridged)

Les Misérables is set in Paris after the French Revolution. In the sewers and backstreets, we encounter ‘the wolf-like tread of crime’, and assassination for a few sous is all in a day’s work. We weep with the unlucky and heart-broken Fantine, and we exult with the heroic revolutionaries of the barricades; but above all, we thrill to the steadfast courage and nobility of soul of ex-convict Jean Valjean, always in danger from the relentless pursuit of the diabolical Inspector Javert.
