Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre closes its 20th Anniversary Season with the long-awaited return of the GHDT masterpiece, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. A beautiful and timeless tale of love and jealousy, GHDT’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame celebrates Vicor Hugo’s dark tale with a contemporary flair. Set on the streets of Paris and the historic church, Notre Dame de Paris, this captivating performance tells the dramatic story of Esmeralda, the gypsy girl and Quasimodo, the church bell-ringer, through the beautiful sets, vibrant music and powerful dancing. Prolific storyteller, Gregory Hancock, uses poignant moments mixed with athletic artistry to masterfully capture the intricacies of relationships between key characters and the ensemble alike. “This spell-binding full-length ballet is a tour-de-force of modern dance not to be missed.”
