Victor Hugo's beautiful story of love and death is here transformed into a stunning piece of choreography starring Paris National Opera etoiles Isabelle Guerin and Nicolas Le Riche. The ballet features a score by film composer Maurice Jarre, and costumes designed by the legendary Yves Saint Laurent. The ballet, created in 1965 at the Paris Opera, has frequently been revived. Now, thirty-six years later, with its clear and incisive language, its poetic pas de deux and passionate trios, and the staging which makes the crowd scenes so intense, Roland Petit's Notre-Dame de Paris has become a modern classic. Recorded live at the Opera national de Paris, 1996.
