Notre-Dame de Paris

Teatro Bol’šoj, Mosca Production

From 10 February to 5 March 2013

Running Time: 1 hour 55 minutes intermission included

Notes on the performancesOpen 
Esmeralda, Quasimodo, Frollo and Phoebus: four great characters around which a highly dramatic, passionate story revolves. The Corps de Ballet underscores the dynamics almost like an ancient choir. And in the background is the silent but incumbent presence of the cathedral, both witness and actress in this drama.

Notre-Dame de Paris, inspired by Victor Hugo’s novel, with music by Maurice Jarre, sets by René Allio and the renowned costumes of Yves Saint-Laurent, returns to La Scala after more than ten years since its last performances. Once again it will be celebrating Roland Petit and his artistic vein, his ability to evoke and synthesize in bringing the essential cores of the story to light. And the triumph of his vision of the performance as a total creation: dance, sets, costumes, music, theatricality.
