This is from folder #21 of the pictures of the Asian Tour Cast of Notre Dame de Paris.
They did this on March 3rd 2013 at AMT Live Open Mic NightFollow thehunchblog
This was made by me using a picture of Candice Parise who played Esmeralda in the 2011-2012 Asian Tour of Notre Dame de Paris. It’s a parody of iPod commercials.Follow thehunchblog
Some background; When I was sorting out the pictures from the Asian Tour I decided to make a sexy/romantic folder which I put into folder 20. It’s an accident that this folder coincides with Valentine’s day, but it seems appropriate doesn’t it?
Here are two videos of Candice Parise singing as Juliette and as Eponine. Parsie played Esmeralda in the 2011-2012 Asian Tour cast of Notre Dame de Paris as Esmeralda. That cast sang in English but watching these video makes me want to hear her sing Esmeralda in French.
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
