Les Miserables in Cebu Cultural Center

Les Miserables in Cebu Cultural Center

This is the vision of the Provincial Government of Cebu and the Philippine Exhibits and Themeparks Corporation (PETCO) as they prepare to open the Cebu Cultural Center (CCC) on March 16, 2012.

The Summary of Les Miserables

Les Miserables is a story of Jean Valjean, an escaped convict whose life is transformed and turned toward goodness by an act of Christian charity. It is also a history of Hugo’s time. With wealth of social and philosophical commentary, the work is an eloquent plea for social reform.

Jean Valjean was released after nineteen years in prison. He had been sentenced to a term of five years because he stole a loaf of bread to feed his starving sister and family. Jean’s sentenced was increased because of his attempts to escape. During his imprisonment, he astonished others by his exhibitions of unusual physical strength.

Freed at last, he started out on foot for a distant part of the country. Innkeepers refused him food and lodging because his yellow passport revealed that he was an ex-convict. Finally, he came to the house of Bishop of Digne, a saintly man, who treated him graciously, fed him, and gave him a bed. During the night Jean stole the Bishop’s silverware and fled. The incident was reported , and the policemen immediately captured him with the stolen goods. Without any censure, the priest did not only give him what he had stolen, but also added his silver candlesticks to the gift. The Bishop told the gendermes that those silverware were given to Jean as present. So, the astonished gendermes let the prisoner go. Alone with the Bishop, Jean was confounded by the churchman’s attitude; though, the Bishop asked only that he should use the silver as means of living an honest life.

    Can’t wait to watch it tomorrow @ 3PM. I’m positive they’ll meet my expectations knowing that this is Cebu.

    I was able to watch the play yesterday. No questions about their voices, costumes and props. I was just concerned on the mics of some of the cast members. They were dysfunctional. I know it happens on a live performance but if we can minimize it next time that would be great. Also, to the technical team, if they can be more attentive as to when the mic should be turned on an off. That would be great.

    Kudos to Gavroche and young Cosette. They were fabulous!

    I can’t wait to watch another play. Miss Saigon maybe? Yes? 🙂
