''Notre-Dame de Paris'' is an ''enormously'' popular (as in, played in ''Korea'' popular) French-language rock opera, originally starring Québecois singing sensation Garou. It is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Creator/VictorHugo, better known in English as ''Literature/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''.
!!Tropes found in the musical ''Notre-Dame de Paris'':
* AdaptationDistillation: Several characters are cut out of the musical, including Frollo's brother Jehan, Esmeralda's mother, and King Louis. The plot doesn't suffer much.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Quasimodo is played by the adorably baby-faced Garou.
** Quasimodo is given makeup that's meant to distort his features, but the success varies greatly by the production and actor's actual face.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: In order to fit the rhyme scheme, ''Florence'' changes the city that Gutenberg built his printing press from Mainz to Nuremberg.
** Quasimodo's "Danse mon Esméralda", right after Esmeralda's death. He's witnessed the death of the woman he loves and killed his adoptive father. He's resolved to die holding Esmeralda's dead body, because "dying for you is not dying". Yeah, he's pretty broken.
** Frollo finally goes insane, complete with InsaneLaugh, in "Mon maître, mon sauveur (My Master My Saviour)".
** Fleur-de-Lys also has a one, in "La Monture", about how she was destroyed by Phoebus and she'll only take him back if he hangs Esmeralda
* CrowdSong: Whenever Clopin sings, he usually has the rest of the outcasts (ensemble) singing with him ("Les sans-papiers", "La Cour des miracles"). There's also the reprise of "Le temps des cathédrales" at the end.
* DarkReprise: "Les sans-papiers (The Refugees)" reappears during the attack on Notre Dame, but this time it's even more serious and [[spoiler: Clopin dies]] in the middle of the song.
* DistantDuet: Esmeralda and Fleur-de-Lys sing about how much they love Phoebus and how they believe he will love them back forever ("Beau comme le soleil"). Also Esmeralda and Quasimodo in "Les oiseaux qu'on met en cage (The Birds They Put in Cages)".
* EpicRocking: "Le temps des cathédrales" again.
* GriefSong: "Danse mon Esméralda", as noted in BSODSong
* IAmSong: "Bohémienne", sung by Esmeralda
* IgnoredEpiphany: "Tu vas me détruire (Your Love Will Kill Me)" is this trope in song form.
* LoopedLyrics: "Beau comme le soleil" (guess which line is repeated over and over!)
* MassiveMultiplayerEnsembleNumber: "Fatalité," the last song of Act 1, has the members of the main cast who are not incapacitated comment on fate.
* MrExposition: Gringoire only interacts with the characters three times and for the rest of the musical his only purpose is to act as a neutral third-party witness to what's going on in the story.
* NeverMyFault: "Je reviens vers Toi". Phoebus tells [[WomanScorned Fleur-de-Lis]] that he was [[BlatantLies bewitched by Esmeralda]], and that he wasn't in his right mind. Also, Frollo claims Esmeralda seduced him so he's not at fault for his lust.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Averted in the musical. While in the book Quasimodo drives Clopin's followers and Esmeralda's would-be rescuers away from Notre Dame due to misunderstanding, in the musical he rescues them from the prison and they fight together to defend Esmeralda in Notre Dame. The [[RedShirtArmy mob of outcasts]] still gets killed.
* SanitySlippageSong: "Tu vas me détruire" for Frollo
* SoundtrackDissonance: "Un matin tu dansais (One Bright Morning You Danced)". The instrumental starts out bright and cheerful, as Frollo and Esmeralda sing of the ones they love. Then he tries to blackmail her into having sex with him or face execution. Then he tries to rape her. All the while, the same bright, twinkly tune plays on.
* TruckDriversGearChange: All over the place, most notably in "Les temps de cathedrales" and "Danse, mon Esmeralda", with the latter being especially [[UpToEleven notable]] due to it coming to a conclusive close (after it's already shifted gears several times already!) and ''still'' going up one last time, to top out at [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome a powerful high A-flat.]]
* WomanScorned: Fleur-de-Lis is engaged to Phoebus, but he cheats on her with Esmeralda. In the song "La Monture", she says she will only take him back if he promises that they will kill Esmeralda.
* VillainLoveSong: "Être prêtre et aimer une femme": Frollo about Esmeralda.
** "Tu vas me détruire" sung by Frollo is kind of an inversion. He's being "[[NeverMyFault seduced]]" by one of the ''good guys''.
