Gregory Gerbrandt returns to the National Theatre in the capital of Ecuador to debut the role of Javert in the Internationally acclaimed musical, Les Misérables.  Gerbrandt was previously in Ecuador for both West Side Story and Faust, performing the roles of Riff and Valentin, respectively.

Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 70 million people worldwide, Les Misérables is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit.  The true modern classic is based on Victor Hugo's novel and features one of the most memorable scores of all time.

In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment.  He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways.  Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter.  His world view shattered, Javert commits suicide, and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.
