The musical Notre-Dame de Paris, by Luc Plamondon and Richard Cocciante, will return to Quebec in a new version in the summer of 2018, 20 years after its creation in Paris.
The Quebec tour will take place on August 11, 2018, at the Grand Théâtre de Québec, then stop at Trois-Rivières, at the Théâtre St-Denis from September 5th, then in Sherbrooke and Saguenay.
“There are also very serious discussions to remake Toronto that we had already done twice in French,” says producer Paul Dupont-Hébert.
Daniel Lavoie is the only remaining member of the troupe of origin, but two other Quebecers, Martin Giroux and Richard Charest, are the new distribution that can be seen at the Palais des congrès de Paris for a week.
The show still staged by Gilles Maheu, assisted by Robert Marien, features new costumes and lighting, but the wall that serves as decor has not changed.
Tickets for Quebec performances will go on sale on Saturday, December 3rd.
