Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts presents their high school musical – LES MISERABLES. Andrew Kottler directs the production, with musical direction by Linda Appleby & Karen Saxon and choreography by Rebecca Bateson Brown. Timothy Buckley directs the show’s pit orchestra.
In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of his adopted daughter.
