Les Misérables - The Robbery / Javert's Intervention - Netflix

“The Robbery” is a lesser-known song from the musical. The young adults Eponine, Marius, and Cosette are introduced (though Cosette's part in the scene is silent). Marius and Cosette bump into each other and fall in love at first sight. Thénardier attempts to rob Jean Valjean, whereupon realizing Valjean is the one “who borrowed Cosette,” a brawl breaks out. Éponine cries out as Javert arrives on the scene, (a segment of the song commonly known as “Javert's Intervention”) but, because Javert does not immediately recognise Valjean, the latter escapes; Thénardier then convinces Javert to let him go and pursue Valjean instead. French Versions 1980 Original French Version – This song appeared at the end of Donnez, donnez (Give, Give) on the recording, but also existed in the stage show. 1991 Parisian Revival Version – This song was cut from the recording.
