The digital set design gives the feeling of being inside the Notre-Dame cathedral and on the bustling streets surrounding it. There is also an option for some of the audience members sit on the stage itself, as quiet witnesses included in the drama and large chorus.
The musical is based on Disney’s landmark 1996 animated film The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Victor Hugo’s legendary 1831 novel of the same name. It is created by the Oscar-winning team of Alan Menken, composer of Disney’s Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, and Stephen Schwartz, lyricist for Prince of Egypt and Disney’s Pocahontas, and contains music from the animated movie as well as new songs.
Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame – THE MUSICAL is staged in collaboration with Fredericia Teater in Denmark, where it had its Scandinavian premiere in October 2016. The show was an enormous success among audiences and reviewers alike, receiving three awards, including “Best Musical”.
The musical is recommended for everyone above the age of 7.
