“Les Misérables in Bratislava is a fresh and vital interpretation of Alain Boublils and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s masterpiece.”

This is how the BroadwayWorld theatre website reviewed the recent Slovak premiere of the famous musical, which took place on September 20. It even called it “maybe one of the best Non-Replica productions from the past few years”.

It focused on the work of director Marie Zamora, who is no stranger to the material. She originated the role of Cosette in the Paris production of the show and is married to one of the creators, Alain Boublil, the website wrote.

It also pointed to the fact that the Nová Scéna theatre in downtown Bratislava is doing a non-replica production.

“Zamora took the show and created a fresh and touching version,” the review reads. “It’s like watching something familiar from a different perspective.”

The review goes on to say that Bratislava is offering all that is required to meet high expectations when it comes to Les Misérables. It has gobsmacking performances, a lovely and detailed set design, and the huge Slovak Symphonic Orchestra.

The review also noted Bratislava is “just a stone’s throw away from Vienna”.

“Enjoy the beautiful old town of the Slovak capital and witness Zamora's Les Misérables before heading back to Vienna, where the world’s most famous junkyard is waiting for you,” the website reads. “It doesn’t get any better than this. Music speaks a unique language and Les Misérables is a perfect example.”
