Musicals are very popular in France, especially since the 1970s with the release of Starmania. Each year, new musicals are created, telling the main events in French history, or to adapting literary masterpieces.
Here is a selection of the most famous French musicals. They are, for the most part, available for free on Youtube:
- Notre-Dame de Paris
- Les Dix Commandements
- Le Roi Soleil
- Mozart l’Opéra Rock
- 1789 Les amants de la Bastille
There are also musicals for children, such as Émilie Jolie or Le Soldat Rose.
