Trivia

Composer Riccardo Cocciante was convicted of tax fraud by a Paris court on March 20, 2006 and given a ten-month jail term plus a fine of 37500 euros. He and his wife Catherine were found guilty of concealing profits from this hit musical, believed to be in the region of six million euros ($7.3 million/GBP4.3 million). They would have had to pay 2.8 million euros in taxes. He was not in court for sentencing, and his wife said they intend to appeal. On January 25, 2007 The Court of Appeal of Paris condemned Cocciante and his wife three years of imprisonment for tax evasion, a fine of 37500 euros each, and both were deprived of their civic, civil and family rights over a period up to five years.

A beautiful interpretation of a classic tale
6 February 2008 | by RenfieldetteSee all my reviews

Richard Cocciante and Luc Plamondon's comedy musicale is one of the finest world musicals I have seen. The thing about foreign musicals is they do not carry subtext and thought provoking material in the songs, but within the staging and visuals. Don't expect Stephen Sondheim. The great thing about these types of musicals is that you can think about what's going on while you watch it, and just enjoy the music on CD. The performers are fantastic. I've long been a fan of each of them, Julie Zenatti being one of my favorite solo artists. Garou OWNS the role of Quasimodo, and the rest of the cast is pitch perfect as well. All of the songs are melodic and romantic, and the french language is the icing on the cake. The story is much more accurate than the Disney version, and includes one of the most gorgeous songs ever written, "Belle."
