Well said, Victor Hugo!!!
Although Hugo’s many talents did not include exceptional musical ability, he nevertheless had a great impact on the music world through the inspiration that his works provided for composers of the 19th and 20th century.
Well over one thousand musical compositions have been inspired by Hugo’s works from the 19th century until the present day.
Hugo’s novels as well as his plays have been a great source of inspiration for musicians, stirring them to create not only opera and ballet but musical theatre such as Notre-Dame de Paris and the ever-popular Les Misérables.
