A Night at the Musicals - Les Miserables
I Dreamed A Dream / On My Own
Performed by: Martha & Caitlin
Well … what can one say about one of the greatest and most famous musicals of all time? Based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo. Another through-musical, it was composed by Claude-Michel Schonberg (who also wrote another worldwide hit with Miss Saigon) with lyrics by Alain Boubil, and debuted in Paris in 1980. It is the longest-running musical in the West End and the second-longest running musical in the world. As with Hamilton, it was originally conceived as a French-language concept album.
