Who Am I

A pivotal moment in the musical, Who Am I sees Jean Valjean grappling with questions of identity. This powerful solo provides insight into Valjean's internal struggles and unwavering determination.

The Confrontation

The Confrontation unfolds as a dramatic duet between Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert. This high-stakes number accentuates the persistent conflict between these two central characters.

Honourable mentions
