Claude-Michel Schönberg

29 June 2019 - 29 June 2019
Take a Left Productions presents Claude-Michel Schönberg in conversation with Edward Seckerson at St James, 8pm on Saturday 29th June. The legendary composer of the musical Les Misérables visits the island where Victor Hugo wrote his classic novel. Together with lyricist Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg created two of the greatest international successes in the history of musical theatre, Les Misérables and Miss Saigon. In a rare public encounter, and a 2019 exclusive to Guernsey, Claude-Michel Schönberg will sit down with writer and broadcaster Edward Seckerson to discuss his journey from songwriter, record producer and singer (including his French number one hit song Le Premiere Pas) to the stages of the West End and Broadway. Illustrated with treasured recordings, he will discuss how his “Rock Opera” La Révolution Française set him on the path to Victor Hugo and Les Misérables and how a single photograph from the archives of the Vietnam War prompted a dramatic new take on Puccini’s Madam Butterfly, as well as the elusive process which triggers the melodies, his love of opera and ballet, and his continuing quest to breathe new life into perhaps his greatest score, Martin Guerre. The event forms part of the Victor Hugo in Guernsey Conference 2019 (www.victorhugoinguernsey.gg) and you can visit their website for full Conference details and ticket packages. M Schönberg is very generously donating his fee for this event to The Victor Hugo in Guernsey Society.
