The story is based on 19th century revolutionary France. The main character, Jean Valjean, was a poor peasant who had to spend nineteen years serving on parole for stealing some bread to feed his hungry little niece. There are many more stories around him, with passion, persecutions, revolution, dreams and life-changing events.

The Cervantes Theatre is located in the historic city centre of Malaga. It is the oldest theatre on the Costa del Sol and it has been the official host of the famous Malaga Festival over the years. It was built in 1870, after an old theatre located on the same plot of land was totally destroyed in a fire. It was designed by architect Gerónimo Cuervo with the collaboration of the painter Bernardo Ferrándiz. Over the years it suffered from abandonment and negligence until 1984, when the City Council took over the theatre and rebuilt it as it is nowadays.
