I have seen both the french and Italian versions of this shows, and I must say that this one blew me away. Although I have a soft spot in my heart for the original, I think that this version was much better. Giò Di Tonno was so convincing as the lovable hunchback, and he tried to stay true to Garou's original portrayal of him, and succeeded. And Lola Ponce...what can I not say about her. She's beautiful, has a wonderful voice, and is passionate in her role as Esmeralda. Claudia D'Ottavi wasn't too convincing for me as Fiordaliso (Fleur de Lys), but only because she couldn't pull off the falsetto that she tried; I'm a huge Julie Zenatti fan anyway. But, I think, that was the only drawback to this production. See this one!
