"Prologue: Work Song"

"Overture" is an instrumental piece in Les Misérables. It is the first song in the musical.

Role Edit

The overture of the musical is a purely instrumental piece that uses the "Look Down" theme as its main tune. The piece is played in the opening of both the play and the film. It transitions straight into the Prologue and the work song.

TriviaEdit

  • In 1985 London version instead of current overture, it had the same motif as at the beginning of At the End of the Day. Also, the entire piece was played in Minor.
