Two of the main themes in this work are the passion, compassion and interaction of these powerful human emotions.
At the heart of the story, we find Jean Valjean, who takes care of Cosette after the death of her mother. Eponine painfully loves a man who ignores her and gives her life for him, even though she knows he does not feel the same way about her. At the heart of the story the passionate Revolutionaries fight for a France and also sacrifice their lives for their ideals.
Los Miserables is a heavy show and fortunately represents a world that is very different from what we know in our serene community in these mountains. However, the show begs us to ask ourselves: What are we passionate about? Do we practice compassion? How far would we fight to fulfill our dreams and aspirations?
Passion and commitment are two words that are commonly used to describe art, theater and the process of putting together a production like this. The 25 actors in Los Miserables, together with staff and musicians, committed their vacations with passion to learn the script, songs, choreography, action, music and know themselves more to tell a story frozen in time. In addition, new friendships were formed, they learned new languages and they created a family.
Far Corners is passionately committed to bringing musical theater to Monteverde. After 10 years of hard work, the organization has built a stage for friendship, expression, integral growth and community, through the performing arts. These young actors have become leaders and even their parents have become cooks and set designers.
We hope to enjoy this work; As it is the first time that this show is produced in Costa Rica and Central America. Although this story takes place 184 years ago; Each of these characters struggles with the impulse of human passion and commitments similar to those found in our daily lives.
