We anticipate having 4 AEA principal contracts available, which will be used on 4 of the following 5 roles:

SEEKING:

[CLAUDE FROLLO]
male, 30s-40s. Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral and the most powerful cleric in Paris, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo. He will do whatever it takes to rid the city of the gypsy “vermin,” even as he lusts after Esmeralda. Calculating, manipulative, and obsessive. Baritenor, E2 to Bb4.

[QUASIMODO]
male, 20s, The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame and Claude Frollo’s charge. Lonely and staunchly obedient to Frollo, he possesses a vivid imagination that brings to life the bells and gargoyles of the cathedral. Despite his shyness and uncertainty, he quickly befriends Esmeralda. Big-hearted, and brave when need be. Soaring tenor, Bb2 to Bb5.

[ESMERALDA] female, 20s, person of color. A beautiful and free-spirited gypsy 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. Lead. Versatile belter with mix/great contemporary style (E3-D5)

[CLOPIN TROUILLEFOU]
male, 25-45, The clever and charismatic King of the Gypsies. 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, he is witty and playful, but he boasts a darker, serious nature when not performing for the crowd. Lyric baritone to F#.

[CAPTAIN PHOEBUS DE MARTIN]
Male, 25-40, 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. Baritone, A2 to Ab4.
