PBS airs Vox Lumiere's performance of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"
The basic website is here.
There is a photo album of Flickr here.
The music incorporates the Cirque du Soleil.
The dancing and lyrical songs are performed with the backdrop of the 1923 silent film of the novel, projected on a back screen in black and white. (Lon Chaney was Quasimodo in that film.) The novel is about a peasant revolt in 15th Century Paris.

I saw the 1996 animated film of the novel from Walt Disney Studios.
