Victor Hugo’s tale of tale of love and loyalty triumphing over corruption springs to life on stage

Esmeralda is a ballet in 3 acts, 5 scenes, inspired by Victor Hugo's novel Notre Dame de Paris, screening exclusively at Riverside Theatres on Saturday, 11 and Sunday, 12 May at 1pm.

Esmeralda was first presented in London in 1844. It was then choreographed again by Marius Petipa in 1886 for the Bolshoi Ballet. Today’s choreographic version is from Yuri Burklava and Vasily Medvedev and was first presented at the Bolshoi in December 2009.

This stunning ballet tells the story of Poet Gringoire, sentenced to be hanged, who is saved in extremis by beautiful Esmeralda and agrees to marry him. Archdeacon Frollo, torn between his love for God and his obsession for the gypsy girl, sends his henchman Quasimodo to capture her.

Choreographed by Marius Petipa and based on Julet Perrot’s original 1844 version, with music by Cesare Pugni, this popular ballet is another wonderful show to be screened at Riverside as part of many from the Bolshoi Ballet.

Please note Esmeralda is a screening.
