Notre Dame sold out in Ankara

The new season of the Ankara State Opera and Ballet opened in great fashion with tickets for Victor Hugo’s world famous work ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ selling out.

Head choreographer of the Ankara State Opera and Ballet, Armagan Davran, said: “Since we received great interest, we have chosen ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ as the first play of the season. Tickets were sold out within 15 minutes. The audience likes this work very much.”

The play of Notre Dame sees the lead character, a bell ringer called Quasimodo who is abandoned as a baby only to be adopted by Claude Frollo. Quasimodo lives out his life within the constraints of a cathedral and rarely goes out of the cathedral due to people snubbing him for his appearance.

The world famous play will be a unique watch for anyone in Ankara at the time of the play. Those lucky enough to have got tickets will witness the legendary play bought to live in one of Turkey’s grandest stages.
