Phoebus plunging from the bridge.

Esmeralda takes place when Frollo is searching for Esmeralda and Phoebus realizes that he would rather be “good than smart”, (morality over career ambition) and he disobeys Frollo. After he stands up to Frollo, Frollo condemns him to death and Phoebus flees with Esmeralda’s help. Frollo then begins to burn down Paris for Esmeralda while Quasimodo worries. This officially ends Act 1 of Der Glöckner von Notre Dame.

LyricsEdit

ESMERALDA:
In my life, I've seen some things
Cruelty and heartlessness
And the danger fighting them brings
Then a fight comes, I say "yes"
I am just a fool...

PHOEBUS:
... I am just a fool, I guess

FROLLO:
Coward! Traitor! Gypsy's pawn!
You're relieved of your patrol

PHOEBUS:
Consider it my highest honor.

FROLLO:
Kyrie Eleison
God have mercy on your soul
Do away with this seditious ingrate.

CLOPIN:
And as his bow, the soldier drew
Who should appear - the gypsy Esmeralda
She hurled a stone, the arrow flew
And then they both escaped into the dark...

FROLLO:
Don't stand there, get them! I don't care if you have to burn down all of Paris!
Hunt down the gypsy Esmeralda
Don't let her flee
And vanish in the night
These are the flames of Esmeralda
While she is free
Our torches will burn bright

FROLLO / SOLDIERS:
Hunt down the gypsy Esmeralda
Don't let her flee
And vanish in the night
These are the flames of Esmeralda
While she is free
Our torches will burn bright

QUASIMODO:
Fire! Fire! Smoke and flame
Esmeralda, where are you?
In this dark, I call your name
Is that all that I can do?

PHOEBUS:
What have I done for Esmeralda?
Why do I hear her voice inside my head?
Why do I think of Esmeralda?
With my career and prospects left for dead

FROLLO:
Once more my duty calls
Paris is burning
Lit to expose that furtive pair
Sneaking about out there...

QUASIMODO:
Out there somewhere she is lost...

PHOEBUS:
Somewhere she is lost...

QUASIMODO / PHOEBUS:
Esmeralda!

QUASIMODO / PHOEBUS / FROLLO:
Where is the girl called Esmeralda?
The flames grow tall
And sharp as fleurs-de-lis
All Paris burns for Esmeralda
And still it all
Comes down to her and me

FROLLO:
The devil dwells in Esmeralda

QUASIMODO:
Oh Esmeralda, Oh Esmeralda

PHOEBUS:
I've got to find her...

FROLLO:
Resist his charm

QUASIMODO / GARGOYLES:
Wake up the city and sound the alarm!

FROLLO / SOLDIERS:
Wake up the city and sound the alarm!

CLOPIN / CHORUS:
Wake up the city and sound the alarm!

ALL PRINCIPLES:
These are the flames of Esmeralda
The night is singing
Of Esmeralda
Even the bells of Notre Dame!
