A Tragic Love Story That Would Never Be...

Poor Quasimodo. The deformed hunchbacked bell ringer of Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral, whose heart is captured by a beautiful and kind-hearted gypsy, was sentenced early to a life of confinement inside the walls of the church. Shunned and despised by all for his deformities, he experiences only a brief moment of human kindness from the compassionate young Esmeralda, who offers him a drink of water while he is being whipped for punishment. Even she, though, is too disgusted by his ugliness to let him kiss her hand. He falls in love with her despite this and hopes to eventually win her heart. Alas, the young woman is tortured and sentenced to death by hanging for attempted murder. A tragic and moving scene featuring the broken-hearted Quasimodo singing to his beloved ensues and, watching it unfold before my eyes, I can't help but fight back a few tears. This is the original 'Danse, mon Esmeralda' performance by Garou in the French Canadian version of Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame), based on French author Victor Hugo's 1831 play published under the same name.
