Description

ABOUT THE BALLET

La Esmeralda is a ballet that takes its inspiration from Victor Hugo’s novel “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.” Set in 15th-century Paris, this ballet tells the tragic love story of Esmeralda, a beautiful and kind-hearted gypsy dancer, and Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral. Their fates become entwined as they navigate the complexities of love, societal prejudice, and the pursuit of acceptance and freedom.

ABOUT THE COMPOSER

Drigo (1846-1930) was an Italian composer and conductor best known for his contributions to ballet music in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Drigo, who was born in Padua, began his career as a violinist before becoming a conductor at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was in this job that he rose to prominence for his ballet compositions. His collaborations with renowned choreographers like as Marius Petipa resulted in some of the era’s most enduring and popular ballets, including “Le Corsaire,” “La Bayadère,” and “Harlequinade.”
