The Hunchback Variations
dramatizes a hilarious and melancholy panel discussion between Quasimodo, hunchback of Notre Dame, and Ludwig van Beethoven, composer, on their attempt to create a mysterious sound effect called for in Anton Chekhov's 'The Cherry Orchard
Playing out over eleven musical scenes, or 'variations', the story details the duo's collaboration - one doomed by their deafness, unpleasant working conditions, and the fact that Beethoven has not fully committed to the process.
