Les Misérables

“The organisation and placement of the scenes on the continuously revolving stage floor is beyond praise. And John Napier's design certainly does much to honour Hugo's Paris as he lavished on Dickens's London. Two huge trucks rumble on and form a barricaded wall which, just as Hugo describes, seems to contain a city in itself, a fantastic jumble of chairs, barrels, planks and people, a teeming segment of a revolutionary catacomb.”
