Notre Dame de Paris Information
One of France's most popular musicals, Notre Dame de Paris is based on Victor Hugo's novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame with music by Riccardo Cocciante and a book and lyrics by Luc Plamondon.
First performed in Paris in 1998, the score features the song "Belle" which is the third highest-selling single in French music history. The musical tells the story of Quasimodo, a bell-ringer at a cathedral who falls in love with a beautiful dancer called Esmerelda.
Notre Dame de Paris has been seen in over 20 countries and performed in nine different languages. It received a full production in 2000 at the Dominion Theatre in London, where it ran for 17 months and at one point featured Danni Minogue as a cast member.
Notre Dame de Paris is at the London Coliseum from 23rd to 27th January 2019. Tickets are available now.
