Anne Hathaway, who starred as the ill-fated Fantine in "Les Misérables," recently won the Academy Award for her heartbreaking performance. In celebration of her award, Playbill.com looks back at various performances of "I Dreamed a Dream."

The iconic ballad, performed by the character of Fantine in Les Miz, features music by Claude-Michel Schonberg and original French lyrics by Alain Boublil. The song was later translated into English by Herbert Kretzmer, and features orchestrations by John Cameron.
