When Notre-Dame de Paris was partially consumed by fire in April 2019, the French people grieved and the world ached over the loss. Notre-Dame is a narrative concert inspired by Our Lady of Paris and commemorates eight centuries of music stirred by the masterpiece of Gothic architecture that is both the soul of France and an artistic embodiment of human achievement.

Battered, dilapidated and restored, witness to revolution and miracles - this is a celebration of Notre-Dame as a centre for musical innovation and choral transcendence curated by Artistic Director Paul Dyer and woven around cleverly dramatised moments by award-winning playwright and director Alana Valentine. Notre-Dame will transport you into the past, move you into the pain of the present, and affirm hope in the certain resurrection of both the Cathedral and the human spirit.
