From the flyer:
Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil’s first major UK triumph Les Miserables hit the London stage in 1985. Since then it has swept the globe playing to approximately 51 million people worldwide making it the world's most popular musical. This celebrated team has gone on to write more world wide hits including Miss Saigon and Martin Guerre, and individually Claude-Michel's ballet Wuthering Heights. Combined with their first musical La Revolution Francaise which opened in Paris in 1973, they have created five spectacular pieces of outstanding theatre.
This WORLD PREMIERE symphonic concert celebrates the lives and music of two of the world's most prolific writers of musical theatre with music from all five works includes new music never performed before.
