Alain Boublil is a Tunesian and started his carriere in 1973 with
"La Révolution Française". After seeing "Oliver!" in
London he and Schönberg had the idea to compose a musical about the great
LES MISÉRABLES from 1978 till 1980.
In the year 1985 they brought "The
Wretched" with the help of Cameron Macintosh whom Alain Boublil had met two
years ago while he was working at the musical "ABBAcadabra" (about the
band ABBA) to the London West-End! A few months ago there was the 3 800th show.
This musical which has been produced in 21 countries (in 15 different languages)
is owner of the GOLDEN EUROPE- MUSICAL OF THE YEAR 1996, one Grammy-Award and
two Tony-Awards (New York).
MISS SAIGON was their second successful
musical. Today the modern MADAME BUTTERFLY is performed in London, Tokio,
Toronto, Budapest, Stuttgart, Sydney and also in many other US-american cities.
After the London premiere of MARTIN GUERRE they are producing movies of MISS
and -of course- of LES MISÉRABLES.
