I don’t know what you think, but it looks pretty fantastic to me! Personally, I believe The Hunchback of Notre Dame to have one of the most beautiful and chilling scores, which I’m glad was highlighted in the video. According to

At each performance, 32 local choir members from the Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus will serve as the onstage choral ensemble.
