Event Description

Esmeralda, based on Victor Hugo's Hunchback of Notre Dame, tells the tale of a poor gypsy dancer, a handsome, but heartless lover, an evil archbishop and a strange reclusive hunchback, complete with all the splendor and pageantry of medieval Paris. A rare treat not seen in the U.S. for over fifty years, The New York Times hailed this production as "a new, ambitious and smoothly sustained staging…a rare look at a full three-act Esmeralda." The Star-Ledger called it "spectacular…colorful and dramatic." Pointe Magazine praised it as "a major, classical revival."
