Seen by over 120 million people worldwide, LES MISÉRABLES is undisputedly one of the world’s most popular musicals. Coinciding with its 35th triumphant year in London’s West End, Cameron Mackintosh produced a spectacular sell-out staged concert version at the Gielgud Theatre featuring an all-star cast including Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Matt Lucas and John Owen Jones.
The All-Star concert was a limited run at the Gielgud Theatre in London and was not presented in the show's West End home (which was undergoing renovations at the time).
The filmed performance, which was announced after all dates were sold out, was held in December and broadcast live to cinemas in the UK, similarly to Billy Elliot: Live, and Everybody's Talking About Jamie. The filmed version later had a US release as well that same month.
The show was later released by Universal Studios on home media and digital download.
