The DECC was filled with the sounds of a huge production on Sunday.

The sets for the upcoming production of "Les Miserables" have been moved to the DECC for the final rehearsals. It's the first time the Duluth Playhouse, the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and the Minnesota Ballet have all teamed up on a project.

The Duluth Playhouse is celebrating its 100th anniversary season this year, but Executive and Artistic Director Christine Seitz said that's not the only reason they're pulling out all the stops for this production.

Seitz said it's also because of the story.

"I think 'Les Miserables' is one of those beautiful, poignant stories that's put to music," she said. "It's about hope, it's about redemption, it's about love, and it's about passion."

The play runs Wednesday, July 16, through Saturday, July 19, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available on the Duluth Playhouse website or at the DECC box office.
