Five stars, that is not enough!,
This review is from: Notre Dame De Paris (Double CD) [French Import] Version Integrale (Audio CD)
This is one of the most powerful musicals that I have ever had the priveledge to go to and listen. It is in French, but don't let that put yuo off. This recording is the best that there is. It is the full live performance as seen in Paris. It captures all the magic and emotion of the stage on two CD's with the original cast. The English version with Tina Arena just doesn't hold a candle to this one with Helene Segara. The music is extremel powerful and some of the songs just enchant you. Le temps des cathedrales is one of the best openers that one could ever have, and the way that Garou finnishes the performance with Danse mon Esmerelda is astounding, so much power and emotion - it is like the ending of La vita e Bella, you cannot help but hold back a tear. Wonderful! Amazing! Enchanting! Emotional! words are just not enough, you must buy this!
