Les Misérables with Peter Jöback as Jean Valjean

Cameron Mackintosh's musical Les Misérables the Arena Spectacular is coming to Scandinavium in Gothenburg. In the leading role of Jean Valjean, we will see Sweden's foremost international musical star, Peter Jöback. And as Javert we will see the star Bradley Jaden. 

Victor Hugo's tale is a gripping story of shattered dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption – a timeless testament to the resilience of the human spirit. In the beloved musical based on his novel, there are grand and iconic songs such as "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Bring Him Home," and "One Day More."

Les Misérables by Boublil and Schönberg is the longest-running musical in the world. It has been performed in 53 countries and 439 cities worldwide. Les Misérables the Arena Spectacular is an expansion of the hugely successful Les Misérables The Staged Concert, which played over 200 record-breaking performances in the West End. The musical will feature a new extraordinary design created for arenas, and the cast includes over 110 actors, musicians, and staff.

See you at Scandinavium!
