CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Quasimodo

The bell-ringer of Notre Dame, he has a curved spine which affects his posture and gait. A life ringing the enormous bells has given him great physical strength but has also caused a partial deafness. Quasimodo’s non-normative face frightens people. Curious and intelligent, Quasimodo speaks freely and confidently with his gargoyle and statue “friends” in the bell tower, but he becomes unsure and withdrawn in the presence of his master and uncle, Frollo. A lack of social interaction due to his lifelong seclusion in the bell tower can cause nervousness and shyness around other humans – including Esmeralda, who captivates him. Quasimodo’s uneasiness around his uncle can manifest, at times, in a halting speech pattern; this should not be seen as a sign of a lack of intelligence, but merely a result of his severe isolation.

  • Gender: Male

  • Age: 20 to 30

  • Vocal range top: Bb5

  • Vocal range bottom: Bb2

 

Claude Frollo

Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral; a righteous man with a strong sense of obligation to his brother Jehan and nephew Quasimodo – but his strict devotion to the Church supersedes all. Frollo possesses a strong, imposing presence and commands attention and obedience whenever he is present. Deeply ashamed of his intense physical attraction to Esmeralda, he attempts to control his desire by persecuting her and the Romani people (“Gypsies”), whom he deems thieving, unclean, and unworthy of the Church’s protection. 

  • Gender: Male

  • Age: 40 to 50

  • Vocal range top: Bb4

  • Vocal range bottom: E2

 

Clopin Trouillefou

The clever and charismatic sherutno (Romani leader). An air of mystery surrounds Clopin, who often leaves the scene in a puff of smoke. As the master of ceremonies for the Feast of Fools, they are witty and playful, but they boast a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd. Acutely aware of the prejudice against Roma and their resulting precarious position in Paris, Clopin is fiercely protective of Esmeralda and the other Roma, and so shrewdly runs the Court of Miracles as a tight ship.

  • Gender: Any gender

  • Age: 30 to 40

  • Vocal range top: F#5

  • Vocal range bottom: D3

 

Captain Phoebus de Martin

Returning to Paris after serving in the war, Phoebus takes up his new position as Captain of the Cathedral Guard. Overconfident yet charming, this handsome, strong soldier makes the ladies swoon, yet his moral compass is also strong, and he openly defies the corrupted Frollo.

  • Gender: Male

  • Age: 25 to 40

  • Vocal range top: Ab4

  • Vocal range bottom: A2

Esmeralda

A beautiful and free-spirited Romani woman who possesses the strong sense of justice and morality that Frollo lacks. Compassionate, she frees Quasimodo from the frenzied mob at the Feast of Fools and, against her better judgment, falls for the cocky Phoebus.

  • Gender: Female

  • Age: 20 to 30

  • Vocal range top: D5

  • Vocal range bottom: E3

 

Jehan Frollo

Claude’s reckless younger brother. With Florika, he fathers Quasimodo, who he leaves in his brother’s care. Wild, passionate, and strong-willed.
