Twenty years after its Parisian debut, the French musical Notre Dame de Paris is set to return to London in a production that has received national acclaim in 23 countries, been performed in 9 languages and been seen by over 13 million people.
This musical phenomenon is based upon the 1831 novel of the same name by Victor Hugo. Notre Dame de Paris will feature an international ensemble of singers, dancers and acrobats to tell the classic tale of the hunchbacked cathedral bell-ringer, Quasimodo, and his tragic love for the gypsy, Esmeralda.
Featuring the third-biggest-selling single in French history, “Belle”, the original French production will be performed with English surtitles and a live orchestra at the London Coliseum from 23rd January to 27th January 2019.
This is a unique opportunity to see such an extraordinary story, which endures due to its universal themes, performed in the UK by a globally-revered production company. Don’t miss your chance to fall under Quasimodo’s spell.
Angelo Del Vecchio will reprise the role of Quasimodo. He is the only performer to have played Quasimodo in three languages and first played the role in 2011. Other notable credits include Benvolio in Giulietta e Romeo and featuring as a soloist in Rock Revolution.
Hiba Tawaji will play Esmeralda, and has played this role across the world since 2016. She starred in the fourth season of The Voice France, building a strong fan base. Currently, she is working on new music while singed to her record label Mercury.
Having been in the cast since it first opened in Paris in 1998, Daniel Lavoie will play Frollo. He won a World Music Award in 1999 for Notre Dame de Paris. Lavoie has composed for many artists including Céline Dion and Isabelle Boulay and has released 25 albums. He has featured in other projects including Le Petit Prince and Piaf à 100 ans.
Recently celebrating his 1000th performance of the show, Richard Charest will play Gringoire. He has performed across Europe and Canada in productions including Rabbi Jacob and Big Bazar in Montreal and Quebec.
The cast includes Alyzée Lalande, Idesse, Martin Giroux and Jay.
Further casting is to be announced.
The musical is based on Victor Hugo's classic novel in which a hunchback called Quasimodo, who dwells in the bell tower of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, falls in love with a gypsy girl named Esmeralda. However, she is lusted for by the Archdeacon of Notre Dame, Claude Frollo, who manipulates events to gain her trust. To make matters worse, rather than being in love with Quasimodo, Esmeralda’s heart belongs to Phoebus, a man who is already engaged to wealthy socialite Fleur-de-Lys.
