Timed to coincide with the return of Les Misérables to the Melbourne stage in July 2014, Victor Hugo: Les Misérables – from page to stage brings together an extraordinary collection of rarely seen material from around the world.
The exhibition takes visitors on an exploration of writer, poet and artist Victor Hugo’s larger-than-life existence in the Paris of his day, and shows how his personal experiences shaped his masterpiece, Les Misérables. The exhibition brings together rarely seen original manuscripts, photographs, paintings, drawings and publications to reveal Hugo’s passions and politics, family and social conscience.
A partnership with theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh means that original items from the musical production of Les Misérables – one of the most popular musicals of all time – will be on display for the first time, including Les Misérables scripts, scores, costumes, set designs, posters, photographs and film from the Mackintosh archive.
