Wow! Contrary to popular opinion, I always believed that "Hunchback" was one of Disney's finest soundtracks. Sure, the songs weren't as catchy as Beauty and the Beast or The Lion King, but the score was so rich and had such a dark, medieval edge to it, it sent shivers up the spine.
Now Disney's richest score has just got richer! Thanks to a 50 piece orchestra, the sound from this stage production is phenomenal! All of the old songs have been improved and added upon except for "Court of Miracles," the only song I DIDN'T like from the movie, which has been trashed - yippee!) and the new songs are all fitting as well. In particular, I love the "Hoch Uber Der Welt" song ("Top of the World") and the Act I finale, "Esmeralda."
Menken has done it again! If you even half enjoyed the music to the Hunchback movie, you must own this! Now we just have to wait for an English version so that we can understand what on Earth these people are singing! (It's not that bad, most of the time you can guess) As it is currently though, I'm learning quite a bit of German from it.
The whole tone of the show seems much darker than the movie. The gargoyles are more than just comic relief - in fact, I'm not sure if they're comic relief at all anymore.
And the ending! In the movie, where Esmeralda died, and... came back to life... followed by when Frollo... fell... off of the cathedral... the stage show has Esmeralda STAYING dead (the music is beautifully tragic) and Quasimodo going beserk and hurling Frollo from the tower, just like in the book! Thus, the stage show has a much darker, gloomier ending than the movie, which works wonders! It fits the tone of the story much better! I'm just stunned by this C.D.

I can't express how much I love this special soundtrack. I even burnt 2 copies just to avoid overusing the original. And I absolutely think the price is more than appropriate for this astounding classic. Anyway, here's my review:

The Bells of Notre Dame(Die Glocken Notre Dames) *****
- This piece was amazing to begin with and, with the extended dialogue, still remains perfect. The choir is very powerful.

Sanctuary(Zuflucht) ***
- An extended version of Frollo's part in Outhere. The lyrics are amazing and the melody is equally astounding (the gargoyles are a welcome addition, too) but there's a minor piece in the melody that oddly sounds 'happy' in contrast to the rest. Just a minor quip, though.

Out There(Draussen) *****
- Identical in every way to the original. Still excellent.

Rest And Recreation(Ein Bisschen Freude) ***
- Phoebus' theme now with sharp and witty lyrics! Fits perfectly for his character and fairly catchy, especially the end. Sadly, its a bit short.

Balancing Act(Tanz Auf Dem Seil) ****
- Intersting at first, but it grows on you. The intgration of Esmeralda's theme is seamsless and adds an amazing touch. Once again, the choral ending and the chorus is the highlight.

Topsy Turvy(Drunter Druber) ****
- The biggest improvement among the original songs! The addition of Quasimodod's 'Outhere' and the new ethnicized dance theme of Esmeralda are fantastic and the whole song now feels more upbeat and alive.

God Help The Outcasts(Helf Den Verstoss'nen) *****
- Minor additions, notably Quasimodo's duet with Esmeralda in the middle. Otherwise, identical to the original.

Top Of The World(Hoch Uber Der Welt) ****
- A great new song for Esmeralda and the Gargoyles.

There are no words to describe this fantastic musical experience. I'm listening to the CD as I write this. It's perfect. The only thing that could make it better is if it were in English. Disney has to make this into a Broadway show! They're missing out on a huge opportunity to rake in the big bucks with this. I bet it would beat out The Lion King in a heartbeat if it were only given the chance. Until then, we have this beautiful cast recording. I also recommend the wonderful soundtrack to the Disney movie.

If there's currently a copy being offered at a reasonable price on this product page, I'd take the opportunity and order it immediately. Prices seem to fluctuate at a moment's notice, so steal it while you can.

I would like to take the time to explain this CD's overall production and mixing, since other reviewers' have done an excellent job reviewing the songs themselves. If you read the German equivalent of this product page, you'll notice criticisms regarding how the CD is mixed. While some of them are a bit exaggerated, I feel the CD does have one mixing flaw. I'm not sure how to explain this, but the whole sound seems to get progressively louder as the CD moves forward. I find my self turning down the volume after track six or seven. Another point that was mentioned earlier was the lack of the fullness found in the original movie's soundtrack. I don't fault them there, since the orchestra had space constraints during the original production. It's just a different sound you'll get used to. After all, they had the requirement of performing this nightly when the show was active.

In terms of the overall CD, I feel this recording is much more complete than the movie's original soundtrack which (lyrically) leaves you scratching your head in terms of character development. However, if you're into orchestration by itself without any voices, this CD isn't exactly for you - and rightfully so. There's perhaps only one song on this CD without the actors' involvement. I'd be disappointed if this stage recording was a simple rehash of the movie score - and I'd also be disappointed if the soundtrack was exactly like the stage recording, leaving no room for the fullness of the score by itself.
If you have a chance, buy both the score and the stage recording. They complement each other beautifully.

If not, this CD is perfectly fine by itself. It's a phenomenal production, and it's a farce that Disney won't continue the production in another location.
