Twenty years after its Parisian debut, the internationally renowned French musical Notre Dame De Paris will perform in London next year, having won acclaim in 23 countries worldwide.
Based upon the 1831 novel Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo (who also wrote the novels behind Les Misérables and The Grinning Man), Notre Dame De Paris will feature an international ensemble of singers, dancers and acrobats to tell the tale of the hunchbacked cathedral bell-ringer, Quasimodo, and his tragic love for the gypsy, Esmeralda.
The show will play between Wednesday 23 and Sunday 27 January 2019 at the London Coliseum.
Ahead of the twentieth anniversary performance, producer Nicolas Talar says: “It gives me great excitement to bring this classic tale to the London stage. Almost two centuries after the novel captured imaginations, we have now been fortunate enough to share this extraordinary story to audiences worldwide for two decades.”
The original French production in London will be performed with English surtitles and a live orchestra.
Having sold out performances across 16 countries and been translated into nine different languages, Notre Dame de Paris originally debuted at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, 1998. Following its opening, the production was commended in the Guinness Book of World Records 2000 for its record success for a musical during its first year.
The music of Notre Dame De Paris is composed by Richard Cocciante, with lyrics by Luc Plamondon.
