Les Miserables has indisputably become the world’s most popular musical, having been seen by over 55 million people worldwide, in 40 countries and in 21 languages and celebrated its 25th year in 2010. From its opening in London in October 1985, this adaptation immediately captured the imagination and enthusiasm of the theatre-going public. Set in 19th century France, the dramatic score includes the songs “On My Own”, “One Day More” and “Do You Hear The People Sing?”.
On June 13, 2008 Les Misérables opened in the Eduardo Brito Hall at Teatro Nacional. More than 80 production personnel worked hard to make the show possible for the two-week engagement.
Six months before we started rehearsing the cast in the installations of CERTV. Two months to go a 30 feet diameter turntable was installed in the rehearsal room where every scene was going to take place. Two weeks until opening night and we moved to the theater where we would work nonstop to prepare for the big night.
Les Misérables was Escénica’s first grand production at the Teatro Nacional. We worked with great dominican actors, among them: Cecilia García, Nuryn Sanlley, Kenny Grullón, Carolina Rivas, Frank Ceara, Joseguillermo Cortínes and Héctor Aníbal Estrella.
The show had an impressive set design which included among other things: A barricade that transformed on stage and the turntable similar to the original Broadway and London West End productions.Trailer for Escénica LC production of “Les Misérables” by Boublil & Schönberg PHOTO GALLERY
