Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

C’est peu de dire que le succès récolté par la comédie musicale inspirée du célèbre roman de Victor Hugo, Notre-Dame de Paris, a propulsé ses vedettes québécoises au faîte de la gloire ! Quasiment inconnu avant qu’il ne se glisse dans la vilaine peau du bossu Quasimodo, auquel il a prêté sa voix rauque, Garou est devenu une star consacrée de la chanson francophone. Bruno Pelletier, dans le rôle de Gringoire, et Luck Mervil, dans celui de Clopin, ont vu leur carrière solo prendre un nouvel envol. Quant à Daniel Lavoie, il a incarné le cruel Frollo avec une puissance de voix et une émotion qui ont surpris son public.

On retrouve tous ces interprètes de la première distribution du célèbre opéra-rock de Luc Plamondon et de Richard Cocciante dans ce coffret qui contient deux CD et un livret où sont reproduites les paroles de toutes les chansons, ainsi que de nombreuses photographies de scène. Enregistrée devant public au Palais des Congrès de Paris en octobre 1998, cette version intégrale, comportant une cinquantaine de pièces dont les inoubliables “Belle” et “Le Temps des cathédrales”, communique l’atmosphère tantôt tragique tantôt festive du spectacle, de même que la richesse sonore de la prestation live. --Julie Sergent --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Notre Dame de Paris Jan. 27 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was first introduced to the music by my daughter, Jessica Grové, who was cast as Fleur de Lys, and is alternating as Esmeralda in the Las Vegas production which opened on January 21, 2000. I am an opera and classical music lover, and felt that this "type" of music certainly is not for me. Then I went to see the opening performance in Las Vegas last week, and went back FIVE more times. If I did not have to return home, I would have stayed to watch several more performances. Since returning to Columbus, Ohio, I have not stopped playing the exquisite live recording of the French cast. From the haunting opening number extolling "The Age of the Cathedrals", to Esmeralda's lovely melodious lines, the beautiful duets and ensemble pieces such as "Belle" (is there a song ever written more beautiful than this?) to the lovely duet between Esmeralda and Fleur de Lys, all the songs by the gifted composer, Richard Cocciante are without exception outstanding, even, no, PARTICULARLY to an opera snob like myself. I was driving to work this morning and was listening to the beautiful, heartbreaking final song, Quasimodo's soaring plea as Esmeralda's spirit takes flight. I cried so hard, I lost my contact lens. If you love opera, if you love rock, if you love pop, if you love music... buy this CD even if you, like me, do not understand French. Then go to Las Vegas to see the English version so handsomely translated by Will Jennings ("My Heart Will Go On" - The Titanic), and so admirably performed by an outstanding US cast. And see if you don't go back for more, and more. And then listen to the CD again!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece! Je sens l'amour qui s'eveille! Feb. 27 2004
By Macrae
Format:Audio CD
Notre-Dame de Paris is a masterpiece. I first had the opportunity to hear the music in my High School French class. My parents both speak French fluently so I have grown up around it, but I never realized how beautiful the language really is! Garou's performance as Quasimodo was wonderful and now I am hooked on "Seul" (if you haven't heard it, you really have to!). The music is deep and moving. Even if you don't understand French it is still beautiful. It pulls you into the story and creates a great atmosphere.
The musical is also amazing to watch. The movement is incredible and the vocals are indescribable. This CD is worth every penny!!!! Enjoy it!!!! Listen to the sample tracks and you will fall in love with it, just as I have! C'est magnifique!
And to quote the musical itself, "C'est celui pour qui mon coeur bat!" ("It is the one for whom my heart beats!") Au revoir!

If you are a big fan of musical theatre, and/or Les Mis, go with this version. I feel the recording and cast performances are better, and definitely more passionate, since they originate from an actual production. The concept album songs are not in show order, and it does not include some truly incredible songs (les oiseaux). Of course with only one CD, they had to cut somewhere! If you just want a taste of this truly incredible music, then maybe the concept album is for you.
In general I am not a fan of live recordings, but this one makes you feel like you are there! The recording is direct from the show, with nothing left out. The applause, the curtain calls, the incidental music, it's ALL here! Also, the box set includes a small hardcover book with photos and all the lyrics from the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely beautiful Nov. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
The original is always better, other versions maybe be good but it could never do justice to the original. I think, all singers are perfect. My favorite is Daniel Lavoie, at first I didn't like his voice, but then... He has such metal, cold voice, but sometimes gives such gentle notes, that it's just break your heart. All others are perfect. I can't find right words :) But I must say, that Daniel Lavoie and Garou not just singing, they are telling a story with their voices.
In live version I was a litlle disappointed with Helen Segara, she has a stone face, but she sings good. If you want to buy, just buy it, you will not regret. It's not just a musical, it's something beautiful and undescribable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely... Feb. 11 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After a whole year of borrowing the 2 CD set from a friend, I finally own the CDs and I can't stop listening to them. I love the music in Notre Dame for it's simplicity, incredible melodies, and the many unusual sounds that are sometimes noticeable. I am very glad to see so many positive reviews, since most people don't know about this show yet (in the US). As a previous reviewer wrote: "It's all been said before", so I am just gonna say one thing. Those "raspy" comments drive me crazy, and I'd like to take this opportunity to say that one other reason I love this musical so much is that it for once doesn't feature a beautifully voiced, ridiculously high-pitched Quasimodo!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! This could rival Les Mis! BUT... Dec 7 1999
By Anndria
Format:Audio CD
BUY the version integral! (Pomme records) There are some incredible songs (Les oiseaux! ) which are not on this version. Also, with the full version, you get a small hardcover book with all the lyrics and pictures from the show.
I bought this concept CD first, and I could not wait to hear more. If you like musical theatre, or are a big fan of Les Mis, try the full version. Also, the song order on the concept cd does not match the sequence of events.
I was able to see the show in Octobre and it was absolutely incredible! (I haven't felt that way about any show since Les Mis..) This show could easily be as successful as Les Mis if they do not blow the translation.
