The bells of the extraordinary French musical Notre Dame De Paris will ring out in early 2019, as the internationally acclaimed production plays a celebratory London season.
Marking its twentieth birthday, the extraordinary French musical plays in the heart of London’s Theatreland, with international acclaim from 23 countries to its name. The run culminates in its 5000th performance.
Having first enjoyed its Parisian debut at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, 1998, this original French production went on to sell out runs across the world, being translated into nine different languages. Following the opening of Notre Dame De Paris, the production was commended in the Guinness Book of World Records 2000 for its record success for a musical during its first year.
The production is performed at the London Coliseum in early 2019 with English surtitles and a live orchestra. The production stars Angelo Del Vecchio, Hiba Tawaji, Daniel Lavoie, Richard Charest, Alyzée Lalande, Idesse, Martin Giroux and Jay, who are all members of the principal cast in the current world tour.
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 features 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.
With unforgettable music composed by Richard Cocciante, and lyrics by Luc Plamondon, Notre Dame De Paris continues to capture imaginations and send hearts soaring around the world. You can see the phenomenon at the London Coliseum from Wednesday 23 – Sunday 27 January 2019.
Please note this is the original French production, sung in French, and will be performed with English surtitles.
