Music by Claude-Michel Schönberg
Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Alain Boublil
Original Stage Production by Cameron Mackintosh
A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In this specially adapted version of MISS SAIGON, Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg (the creators of LES MISÉRABLES), along with Richard Maltby,Jr., bring Puccini’s Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war.
In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had.
MISS SAIGON SCHOOL EDITION has been specifically adapted to meet the specific needs of the educational theatrical market while maintaining the essence of the authors’ vision. There have been careful edits to the libretto and score, transposition of some of the vocal parts to ensure that the score is better suited to young voices, and the production’s needs have been streamlined.
“Miss Saigon School Edition has been an extraordinary journey for all concerned. The challenges both to performers and those working behind the scenes are certainly worth facing when rewarded with such a positive experience throughout the process, whether it be in rehearsals or the final performances. For us it was important to not simply tell Chris and Kim’s story but also to place the show in its historical and social context. This made the production all the more valuable for our young people as they have had a genuine learning and educational experience whilst working on the show. With so many fantastic set-pieces and wonderful roles Miss Saigon has been a truly memorable experience for all concerned, not least the audiences!”
