The very Popular French Musical Romeo et Juliette is touring is Japan. And guess which two Notre Dame de Paris alumni are in it? The answer is Cyril Niccolai and Candice Parise.
Niccolai who is playing Romeo played Gringoire in the 2001 Morgdor cast. He has also been Benvolio in a previous Romeo et Juliette cast.
Parise who played Esmeralda in the 2011-2012 Asian Tour cast is the understudy for Juliette. Juliette is played by Joy Esther who was married to Damien Sargue who played Romeo in the original cast and also was the understudy for Gringoire and Phoebus in the original cast of Notre Dame de Paris.
Also this isn’t the first the version of Romeo et Juliette has been performed in Japan. The did a 2010 version and The world famous Takarazuka troupe did a version of it. The Takarazua is an all female musical troupe. It probadly won’t happen but I can’t help but to hope that they will perform a version of Notre Dame de Paris.Follow thehunchblog
