In this exclusive event, Golden Globe winner, Oscar nominee and Grammy award winner Claude-Michel Schönberg will take to the stage with the fabulous Julia Zemiro to discuss the world of musical theatre and the process of composing the music for the international sensation that is Les Misérables.

Now in its 28th year and set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Mis tells an enthralling tale of unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption.

By special arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh. Seen by over 65 million people and receiving more than 100 major awards, Les Misérables is one of the world's most popular musicals. This much loved blockbuster musical returns to Australia in June 2014 after 17 years.
