The world premiere of the ballet took place in 1844 on the stage of London’s Royal opera house. The ballet was staged French choreographer Jules Perrot. In many theatre of the ballet is in three acts, with elements of romantic drama.
Konstantin Ivanov, a choreographer:
«We went a little bit of history − closer to the novel by victor Hugo, closer to the drama, to human feelings, got a lot of unnecessary things, including the romantic movement of the performance – «The Dream of Esmeralda». Unlike other productions, we will use all the characters. Very often in the performances exclude the role of poet Gringoire, when it breaks down absolutely everything, break the story».
