A spectacular musical highlight about love, longing and passion

The musical tells the story of Quasimodo, who grows up shielded from the rest of the world in the bell tower of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. When he sneaks into the annual Feast of Fools, he gets into trouble. Only the pretty Esmeralda stands up for him. When she is targeted by the evil Archdeacon Frollo, Quasimodo rescues her und hides her in his church tower. Look forward to the touching story about love, longing and passion and a highly emotional musical evening. 

The orchestra of the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien will play under the direction of Michael Römer.

Roma and Sinti in Europe a text by Gilda-Nancy HORVATH

Quite deliberately, after consultations with the Roma and Sinti community, we have chosen to keep the term »Gypsy« in the text of THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, but to mark it with quotation marks. The reason for this is that under the title »Gypsies«, Roma and Sinti, among others, were already persecuted and murdered before and during the Middle Ages. We do not want to make this historical fact invisible by removing the word pointing to it – rather, it should be shown and pointed out. We explicitly point out that »Gypsy« is a foreign term under which more than 500,000 Rom*nja and Sinti*zze were murdered under National Socialism.
