France - Notre-Dame de Paris musical (FR-42369)

It's my first card about a musical:) I haven't watched any musical, even on TV (really), but maybe it's time to change it :))

Notre Dame de Paris is a French-Canadian musical which debuted on 16 September 1998 in Paris. It is based upon the novel Notre Dame de Paris by the French novelist Victor Hugo. The music was composed by Riccardo Cocciante (also known as Richard Cocciante) and the lyrics are by Luc Plamondon.

Since its debut, it has played throughout France, South Korea, Belgium, Switzerland and Canada. A shorter version in English was performed in 2000 in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) and a full-length London production, also in English, ran for seventeen months. The show has also been translated into Italian, Korean, Russian, Catalan, German, Czech, Polish, Spanish, Lithuanian and Belarusian. It has also been translated independently into (but never performed in) Swedish and Armenian.
