About the show

Twenty years ago, French musical Notre Dame de Paris premiered at the Palais de Congrès in 1998, in Paris. Based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel of the same name, the musical has since been performed in 23 countries, translated into 9 languages and has had successful runs worldwide. Now, the acclaimed musical returns to the West End for a strictly limited seven performances.

Performed in its original French, with English surtitles, the well-known tale is set in Paris in 1482 and follows Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell ringer of Notre Dame, and his unrequited love for Esmerelda, a gypsy living a life of freedom in the city. The tragic story of these two outsiders has since been adapted and retold in many forms since the original novel was published, including the 1996 Disney film.

Enzo Productions Ltd and Adam Blanshay Productions bring the show to London, which is produced by Nicolas Talar. Featuring music and lyrics by Richard Cocciante and Luc Plamondon, the production is directed by Giles Maheu and choreographed by Martino Müller. Featuring an international ensemble, the cast includes singers, dancers and acrobats to tell the classic tale. The music is provided by the superb ENO Orchestra with Matthew Brind conducting.

Principal cast members who starred in the world tour reprise those same roles for the West End run. Angelo Del Vecchio plays the starring role of Quasimodo alongside Hiba Tawaji as Esmeralda and Daniel Lavoie as Frollo. Richard Charest plays Gringoire, Alyzée Lalande and Idesse play Fleur-de-Lys, Martin Giroux takes on the role of Phœbus and Clopin is played by Jay.

Joining them onstage are acrobats Nathan Jones, Samuele Poddi, Abdel Kader Diop, Jonathan Gajdane and Alberto Poli and break dancers Alex Besnier and Pasquale Fortunato. Also among the cast are singers Florian Robert, Rodrigue Galio, Elhaida Dani, Julien Mior and Roland Julienne. The cast is completed by dancers Wilfried Bernard, Martina Ronchetti, Domenico Ausilio, Luca Calzolaro, Gianluca Falvo, Giuseppe Marino, Julie Vlieghe, Marta Marino, Joane Nabonne, Emanuele Pironti, Giulia Barbone, Alexandre Lacoste, Anaïs Replumaz and Roberta Zegretti.

Playing a strictly limited short run at the London Coliseum, this is an extraordinary, record-breaking musical that has been absent from London for nearly 20 years. Notre Dame de Paris plays at the West End venue from 23 January to 27 January 2019, with a press night on 23 January 2019.

Please note that the production will be performed in French with English surtitles.
