About The Show

More than fifty years ago, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg first met and began the collaboration that would change the history of musical theatre with their musicals Les Misérables and Miss Saigon.

Do You Hear The People Sing? is the only concert that the duo have ever authorised and it is the definitive celebration of their work including hits from Les Misérables and Miss Saigon as well as Martin Guerre, The Pirate Queen and their very first musical together, La Révolution Française.

Do You Hear The People Sing? has won acclaim across the United States, Canada and Mexico.  In 2013, Enda Markey produced the Australasian premiere at the Shanghai Grand Theatre starring Michael Ball and Lea Salonga.  In January 2014, a special benefit concert in Manila raised US$550,000 to assist with the rebuilding of two hundred homes devastated by Typhoon Yolanda.  The Australian tour, in 2022, played at Arts Centre Melbourne and the Sydney Opera House. A newly reimagined version of the concert will tour internationally in 2024.
