Esmeralda & Quasimodo, La Esmeralda, Kremlin Ballet Company, Moscow

After seeing a lot of version that felt like no effort was put into them it was refreshing to see that this ballet version tried to create an all round good HUnchback adaption. It told a version of the story that fit limits of a ballet but also catered to the advantage the medium can provide. Was this a perfect version? No, it did make some weird decisions with regards to the source material and add-ons, like that greek myth in the second act and have the Pope of Fools also in the second act.

For the most part this Ballet was good which why it’s harder to review. It’s a decent version of the book but even better if you let yourself get lost in the artist of ballet. Also helps if you like/appreciate ballet more than I do.

Like I said, Good Version of Hunchback are harder to review so let’s go for a not so good version.  What version should be next?

2 Thoughts on “The Conclusion of La Esmeralda

    There is a latvian opera called Parīzes Dievmātes Katedrāle, that was aparently successful in his home country, but fall on obscurity on the rest of world. It is not perfect, but for the most part reaches a balance between been faithful to the novel and make the characters more relatable and likable while find his own identity. Also, i think that have the best portrayal of Gudule’s character and his relationship with Esmeralda, which must serve as a base for future cinematographic adaptation(s) that resolve include that part of the story.

    Here is the link of the full opera on Youtube with 480p image and english subtitles:
