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.

Today we’re going to look at Anne Meson.
