Cest 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 quil 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 latmosphère 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.

This DVD of NOTRE DAME DE PARIS presents the production in its original French with the option to access other language sub-titles, including English. There is also a 15 minute documentary covering the making of the musical. NOTRE DAME DE PARIS is indeed a sprawling production on a grand scale. It tells the story of the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda and of the three men who are enthralled by her: the soldier Phoebus, the priest Frollo, and Notre Dame's hunchbacked bell ringer, Quasimodo. When Esmeralda is accused of a crime which she did not commit, Quasimodo rescues and shelters her in the sanctuary of Notre Dame. However, things fall apart with tragic results.
Garou does a wonderful job of capturing the pain and humanity of Quasimodo. With his plaintive gravelly voice, his is a touching performance. Helen Segara makes for a wonderfully beautiful, if somewhat distracted, Esmeralda. Daniel Lavoie is appropriately tortured as the nasty Frollo, while Patrick Fiori is solid as the shallow Phoebus.Read more ›
This play was true to the book, unlike the disney fairytake, and Garou did a fabulous job really playing the belle ringer of notre dame as a fearful creature with a tender heart. The genius way the light of a rose window is reflected on stage made the whole place come alive. I would definately love to own this movie.
Notre Dame de Paris has been the object of many movies, including a full length cartoon movie by Walt Disney Studios, and keeps making the whole world being moved by the unconditional love of the hunchback of Notre Dame of Paris Cathedral for a bohemian young girl, and the drama that entangles the Cathedral Priest, a soldier and his wife-to be. You cannot remain insensitive to this story, just like you have not been by this of the same author, also put into many movies and a Broadway Musical "Les Miserables", in many languages around the world.
Highly entertaining with acrobats on stage, wonderful singing cast, internationally renown, you will find this DVD very enjoyable, provided that you speak French as there are no English subtitles. But if you already know the story, you should not have any difficulty enjoying the magnificent acting and singing of this spectacular Musical that was internationally acclaimed.
Daniel Lavoie played the tortured and perplexed priest, Frollo. His powerful voice demonstrated his high status in the community, but his shoulders were raised and his eyes looked down, and that established his confusion and insecurities. Lavoie did an excellent job at appearing distinguished on the exterior, but "déchiré" on the interior.
The role of the narrator was played by Bruno Pelletier. Gringoire, a confident poet who marries Esméralda, is a neutral that observes the war between the Church and the Gypsies. Pelletier could, somehow or another, be in most of the scenes but always stayed inconspicuous when he did not sing. His soft voice contributed a sort of serenity to the musical, even with all the chaos and confusion that happened around him.
Garou gave an amazing performance as the deaf hunchback of Notre Dame, Quasimodo. His voice, hoarse, showed his sadness; his costume demonstrated the simplicity of Quasimodo's life; his words indicated his misery that one could also see in his facial expressions. Everything combined created the pathos that the producers wanted him to receive. Garou seemed to have entered the mind of Quasimodo and felt the pain and suffering of a man from who people run. Because of this, the character of Quasimodo is projected onto the stage and allows the audience to feel the pain with him.
This musical was amazing. If you have seen this musical (whether live, or on the DVD) you know why it is so praised. Also, if you liked this musical, you would also like Romeo et Juilliette, and, once it comes out, Dracula: Entre L'Amour et la Mort (which stars Bruno Pelletier as Dracula).
