⭐ THE BELLS OF NOTRE DAME – OVER 100 PERFORMERS COME TOGETHER FOR VIRTUAL RENDITION OF DISNEY CLASSIC ⭐
Over 100 UK performers have come together to remotely record “The Bells of Notre Dame” from Disney’s iconic animated film The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
“The Bells of Notre Dame” is the opening number from the 1996 Disney motion picture The Hunchback of Notre Dame, with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz.
The main cast includes Matt Bateman (The Phantom of the Opera) as Clopin, Lee Van Geleen (Only Fools and Horses) as Frollo and Luke McCall (Les Miserables) as the Arch Deacon.
They are joined by over 100 performers, which includes a mixture of West End performers, performers from across the UK and new performing arts graduates, who each recorded their parts for the song from their homes to comply with COVID-19 safety guidelines.
The individual recordings were then mixed together to create the final performance, which will be available to view online for free, coming later this month.
The project features musical direction from Jordan Li-Smith (City of Angels, Ragtime), Sound Engineering by Josh Everton (MDM Management) and has been produced by Wicked actress Rebecca Gilliland, who founded the new production company, Bookend Productions, to give artists a chance to perform after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down theatres across the world.
Can’t wait to see it! ! ! It’s going to be EPIC! ! !
