The beloved adaptation of Victor Hugo The Hunchback of Notre Dame will come to Lincoln Center more than 20 years after its Parisian debut.
Notre Dame de Paris will make its long-awaited New York debut this summer, after a delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The production, which will be performed in French with English surtitles, is scheduled for seven performances July 13-17 at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, opening July 14 with a special gala on July 14.
The production will feature a 30-member international cast and a live orchestra. The casting has not yet been announced.
Adaptation of Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) has performed in 23 countries since its premiere at the Palais des Congrès in Paris in 1998. The New York premiere will be directed by Gilles Maheu and choreographed by Martino Müller.
Ahead of the New York premiere, producer Nicolas Talar commented, “It’s been a long time since I dreamed of the show being performed in New York. Now, after more than two decades and a longer wait due to the pandemic, it is truly a pleasure to know that we will soon be sharing this immortal story with New York audiences at one of the world’s greatest arts complexes. . We hope Notre Dame de Paris will appeal to our existing fans and create new ones.
