NO, I cannot describe for you the commanding message behind the music of “Les Misérables;” based on a French historical novel by Victor Hugo first published in 1862. However, I can express that the message within the music is as crystal clear today as then.
Example: I dreamed a dream in time gone by when hope was high and life worth living.
Example: One day more; another day, another destiny.
Have we humankind forgotten that the miserable among us are one day them and one day us? That destiny is an irresolute moment in time? That moment-by-moment redemption is within reach requiring each of us to recognize IT.
