Vox Lumeire's scintillating Hunchback of Notre Dame

I viewed Vox Lumiere's Phantom of the Opera on PBS tonight, said Princess Haiku and it rocks! If you visit their web site you can hear video clips of the performance. I am going to try to find a copy of the CD for a stocking or two.

This description is on their web page:

Vox Lumiere is "rock concert meets silent film" in a radically unique live performance that combines music, theatre and silent film to create a completely new entertainment experience. Singers, dancers and musicians join forces with a state-of-the-art multi-media and light show in a radical retelling of timeless movie masterpieces such as Metropolis, The Phantom of the Opera, Peter Pan and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

"... absolutely riveting..." -The Los Angeles Times

"Vox Lumiere is a multidimensional, high-decibel blast
of visual and auditory splendor"
- The Dallas Morning News

"Vox Lumiere joins Cirque du Soleil, and Stomp
as a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience audiences crave!"
-The Daily Breeze.

"Stomp"... Did I really read "Stomp" ? I saw and heard them once in Paris at "la Cigale" near Moulin rouge. It was breathtaking.

I read the "Hunchback of Notre Dame" when I was much younger. It's a great book!
