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.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
