New Jersey Ballet’s spectacular Esmeralda – based on Victor Hugo’s Hunchback of Notre Dame – tells the tale of a poor gypsy dancer, a handsome but heartless lover, an evil archbishop and a strange reclusive hunchback, complete with all the splendor and pageantry of medieval Paris. A rare treat not seen in the U.S. for over fifty years, The New York Times hailed this production as “a new, ambitious and smoothly sustained staging…a rare look at a full three-act Esmeralda.” The Star-Ledger called it “spectacular…colorful and dramatic.” Pointe Magazine praised it as “a major, classical revival.”

This two-act ballet is a lively re-telling of the well-known fairytale about a brother and sister who wander into a forest where they are captured by a witch in a fantastic gingerbread house. In a classic good-triumphs-over-evil plot, the spunky youngsters defeat the witch, free other children she had baked into gingerbread, and are reunited with their loving parents in the happily-ever-after finale. The ballet incorporates the beautiful Englebert Humperdinck “Fourteen Angels” bedtime prayer and features New Jersey Ballet’s original “storyteller” narration so even the littlest theatergoer can keep up with ease.
