For those unfamiliar with the musical, "Les Misérables" is set in 19th-century France and follows the lives and interactions of several characters, particularly the struggles of Jean Valjean.

"An enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit," reads a statement from the Kimmel Center.

The score includes the beloved songs "I Dreamed a Dream," "On My Own," "Stars," "Bring Him Home" and "One Day More."

Tickets start at $25.
