The adaptation of Victor Hugo's 1831 novel Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), written by Richard Cocciante and Luc Plamondon, has played 23 countries since premiering at the Palais des Congrès in Paris in 1998. The New York premiere, performed in French with English supertitles, is directed by Gilles Maheu and choreographed by Martino Müller, and follows a COVID-related delay of more than a year.
