This a Radio-Canada Interview with Myriam Brousseau (Esmeralda/ Fleur de Ly alternate) and Robert Marien (Frollo). The Interview is in French. At 8:15 Brousseau sings Bohemienne in English. For most part I think she does a good, somehow she can sing though the awkward lyrics.
The Notre Dame de Paris Asian TourCastFrollo will be played by Robert Marien. He has also played Frollo in the 2000 Candian Cast and in the 2004 French Cast. He was born in May 5 1956 and is a Québécois. He is an actor, singer, and songwriter who has performed in the musical Les Misérables in Montreal, Paris, New York and London. He has also appeared in numerous films.
Here is a clip of him singing as Frollo from the Canadian Cast with Gino Quilico
I think he a good choice for the role. I have nothing bad to say about this casting choice.
Seems like the Tour Cast with be mostly Canadian Performers and since Matt Laurent with be playing Quasimodo I would predict that the odds of Sylvain Cossette playing Gringoire are high (Sylvain Cossette and Matt Laurent have worked together and Sylvain Cossette has played Gringoire before in the 2000 Candian cast along with Robert Marien.)
Myriam Brousseau is another Québécois and has been in Les Miserables, Beauty and the Beast, Romeo and Juliet and ASSASSINS. She’ll be playing the alternative for Fleur de Lys and Esmeralda. I’ve never heard her sing so I’ll hold off on judgement.

I’ve been informed by a very big fan of Notre Dame on Squidoo, that Matt Laurent has confirmed he’ll play Quasimodo in the Asian Tour cast of Notre Dame de Paris. To read the comment click here. Comments are at the bottom.
I’m not surpise that Matt Laurent is going to play Quasimodo agian. He was an alternative in teh original cast, and he play Quasimodo in the Asian Tour. And Since he’s Canadian he speaks English. He also a decent singer, so I have no problem with this casting. The rest of the cast we’ll see.

Please Note – I’m not 100% sure if this is Nadia Bel or Chiara Di Bari, Looking at pictures of them I think it’s Nadia Bel, however if I’m wrong let me know and I’ll fix it, though I like 98% sure of it.
