Composer Alan Menken (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Aladdin) and lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin) adapt this time-honored story for the musical stage.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a story of love, acceptance and what it truly means to be a hero. With songs from the 1996 Disney animated film, the plot follows the darker Victor Hugo novel. The story follows the disfigured Quasimodo, the Bell Ringer, who lives locked away in a tower. With only the gargoyles to keep him company, he longs to be with people, leading to his encounter with the gypsy, Esmerelda.
The music's orchestral power and choral beauty, along with bold, dramatic theatrics create a powerful rendition of this timeless tale.
