Sing along to Les Misérables
The sing along has become a tradition at the Umeå European Film Festival. Ahead of last year’s festival, the Oscar-winning film adaptation of Les Misérables was chosen by a digital vote. Now we can finally perform it. Longing ballads, powerful choral songs and comic story numbers are just waiting to be sung in this mammoth musical epic.
When? 25 november 18:30.
With 19th-century France as the scene, Les Misérables tells a captivating story of shattered dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and reconciliation – a timeless tale of the immortality of the human soul. Hugh Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, chased for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after once violating his parole. When Valjean agrees to take care of the factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
The evening begins with a joint warm-up, where singing joy and relaxation are in focus. The film is played in English with English subtitles.
This year’s sing along is a collaboration with Umeå Teaterförening.
