The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Based on Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel and including songs from the Disney animated film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame tells the tale of Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of the Notre Dame Cathedral, and his longing to experience the outside world. When Quasimodo escapes for one day, he encounters a beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda, who also enthralls the devious archdeacon Claude Frollo and his handsome captain of the guard, Phoebus. As the three men vie for Esmeralda’s attention, the situation escalates until it envelops all of Paris.
Showcasing themes such as faith, discrimination, and sacrifice, The Hunchback of Notre
Dame explores the power of love and acceptance while asking the question, “What makes a monster and what makes a man?”
