The 1923 silent film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, features Lon Chaney in one of his most moving and impressive performances. This lecture provides some background on the making of the film, as well as a glimpse of how HESPERUS has chosen and assembled a score of French medieval music to accompany the movie. Pre-concert lecture given by Tina Chancey, Director of HESPERUS.
