The Hunchback of Notre Dame

[ Disney Vacation Planner ][WDW Home] [Animal Kingdom] [Animal Kingdom Attractions] [Disney MGM Studios Attractions] [Magic Kingdom Attractions] [Epcot Attractions] [Downtown Attractions] [West Side Attractions]

At A Glance Good 30-min live stage show telling Victor Hugo's classic story.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the Disney MGM Studios is a 30-minute musical stage show. very similar to street theatre, which is performed regularly in the Backlot Theatre just behind New York Street.

The show, based around the Disney animated classic of the same name,is themed around 15th century Paris, and features cast members dressed as gypsies recounting the tale of Quasimido, the Notre Dame bell ringer, and his love for Esmeralda. Unlike the Disneyland Paris version, this show isn't preformed "in the round", however the stage is cleverly extended by ramps out into the audience, which allows the various cast members to seem to move right out amongst the audience at times.

The show starts with a gypsy campsite, where the main storyteller, Clopin, and the gypsy cast cleverly unravel the tale of Quasimodo, amongst various scenes from the film, including the Bell Tower, and the Festival of Fools in the Parisian streets.

Throughout the show the three gargoyles Victor, Hugo and Laverne act as Quasimodo's conscience to assist in the storytelling.

Overall it's an excellent show, tinged with sadness at times, which is well worth watching.
