In 1837, Victor Hugo visited Montreuil-sur-Mer. A few years later, he chose the city as the location of the first part of his most famous novel Les Misérables.
Each year, 500 volunteers perform scenes from the novel in a sound and light show. Fiction and reality mix in the atmospheric and mysterious setting of Montreuil-sur-Mer's historic Citadel.
The eight performances will take place on July 31st and on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th August 2020.
