“It is an enormous pleasure for us, in collaboration with Enda Markey, to bring the concert we conceived to Australia following the warmth of its reception in the USA and in Asia. It is especially thrilling for us to see the concert play in two of Australia’s most iconic venues – Hamer Hall and Sydney Opera House’s newly refurbished Concert Hall,” said Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg. “This new version, especially created for Australian audiences, traces the history of our 50-year collaboration, showcasing a wide selection of well-known songs from our shows as well as a journey of discovery through how some of the songs were written, rewritten or reinvented.”

Do You Hear The People Sing? has been developed over a decade by Boublil and Schönberg in collaboration with producer Enda Markey for its Australasian tour. It has previously been staged in China, Taiwan (starring Michael Ball and David Harris), the Philippines and across the USA including at Carnegie Hall (starring Marie Zamora). Newly imagined for its Australian tour, it reinvigorates Boublil and Schönberg’s timeless music as a multi-layered concert spectacular helmed by Guy Simpson (Conductor) and Andrew Pole (Director). In addition to all the best-known songs, the concert features music from Boublil and Schönberg’s complete oeuvre; Martin Guerre, The Pirate Queen and their very first musical together, La Révolution Française.
