The character of Quasimodo requires the actor to show great vulnerability,
pain, and rage and capture the character’s vivid imagination and joy.
His appearance is described as hideous and physically deformed.
The character’s physical demands are for someone strong, dexterous
and flexible with a head for heights required. Vocally the role suits a strong
tenor, range Bb2 to Bb4. Quasimodo’s songs are challenging, moving between
a belt, falsetto and pure tones. Ethnicity: All ethnicities
Esmeralda is a free-spirited gypsy who often finds trouble for speaking her mind
and standing up for what she believes in. She is described as tenacious, exquisitely
beautiful, exotic, sensual. Her physicality is agile, rhythmic, assured. She is the
peg upon which the story hangs. She bedazzles Quasimodo, wins the heart of the
Captain and stirs agonies of lust in Frollo. The actor will be equally charismatic,
magnetic and sympathetic to the audience. The vocal range suits a mezzo,
range E3 to Eb5. The actor will need dance ability. Ethnicity: All ethnicities
