Notre Dame de Paris: Complete Cast Production

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The original cast recording of Notre Dame de Paris showcases Richard Cocciante's evocative songs, which have been translated into English by composer/lyricist Will Jennings. Based on The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the musical combines opera, rock, and pop elements to tell the story of the loyal hunchback Quasimodo and the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda through songs like "The Bohemienne Song," "My Heart If You Will Swear," "The Age of Cathedrals," and "The Birds They Put in Cages." The album also features two versions of the hit song "Live," one by Celine Dion and one by Tina Arena. A vivid, memorable musical from a classic tale.

    Le meilleur sous le soleil

    As someone who can get by on my marginal french and can comprehend most french, I saw the DVD of the original Parisian casting, I had to have both the production and the soundtrack. Superb, there is something lost in the english translation, so get the french one. Highly reccomended.

    Saw the DVD

    I saw the DVD of the original Parisian Cast recording and I loved it. I only wish I could get some of the Sheet Music from it so that I can perform some of the music for vocal competitions.

    UNBELIEVABLE

    This is the ONLY soundtrack to buy if you love this show. The best songs are left off of the one-disc soundtrack, but they're all here on the complete recording. The english-language version is no good -- although the voices are great, the lyrics did not translate well. Only THIS version captures the magic and the magesty of this beautiful show. A must buy.

    Wow! What an amazing show!

    Saw the actual production of this production in Toronto last night...still reeling from the beautiful songs, wonderful voices and ingenious staging. The songs lift you up, make your heart pound, your eyes mist over and make you glory in the fact that you have ears that can hear music. Definitely recommended...this is much better than the
