"Notre Dame de Paris" contains a unique and unrepeatable alchemy: the unmistakable signature of Riccardo Cocciante makes the music sublime and unmistakable, giving the work a European character. The masterful adaptation of an exciting novel, such as the one written by Victor Hugo, by Luc Plamonon and Pasquale Panella, directed by the wise director Gilles Maheu, joins the choreographies and stage movements curated by Martino Müller. The costumes are by Fred Sathal and the scenes by Christian Ratz; a team of top-level artists who have made this work an absolute masterpiece. "Notre Dame de Paris" debuted in its original French version on September 16, 1998, at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, where it was immediately a triumph. Four years later, David Zard produced the Italian version with Pasquale Panella's adaptation, on March 14, 2002, at the Gran Teatro in Rome, built for the occasion, held the "premiere" of what would be the musical of records, an emotion that, since then, has "infected" 4 million viewers. An overwhelming success that has reached not only the public of France and Italy, but that of the whole world: England, Switzerland, Russia, Canada, up to China, Japan, South Korea, Lebanon, Turkey, along with dozens of other countries, collecting everywhere an unprecedented number of presences.
