The adaptation of Victor Hugo's 1831 novel Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), written by Richard Cocciante and Luc Plamondon, has played 23 countries since premiering at the Palais des Congrès in Paris in 1998. The New York premiere, which will be performed in French with English supertitles, will be directed by Gilles Maheu and choreographed by Martino Müller, and follows a COVID-related delay of more than a year.

The principal casting includes Angelo Del Vecchio as Quasimodo, Hiba Tawaji as Esmeralda, Daniel Lavoie as Frollo, Gian Marco Schiaretti as Gringoire, Yvan Pedneault as Phoebus, Jay as Clopin, and Emma Lépine as Fleur de Lys.

The New York engagement is produced by Nicolas and Charles Talar and Adam Blanshay Productions.

"It has long been a dream for the show to be performed in New York," said Nicolas Talar in an earlier statement. "Now after more than two decades and a wait made longer due to the pandemic, it is truly a thrill to know we will soon share this immortal story with New York audiences in one of the greatest arts complexes in the world. We hope Notre Dame de Paris will please our existing fans as well as make new ones."
