Phoebus plunging from the bridge.

"Esmeralda" is the closing number of Act 1. This song is high on drama and plot. This song 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 condemn his to death and Phoebus flees with Esmeralda’s help. Frollo then begins to burn down Paris for Esmeralda while Quasimodo worries. By the end of the song, Phoebus is spotted on the bridge and shot by an arrow. Esmeralda appears and tries to save him from falling off but Phoebus falls into the Seine river. Esmeralda dives in after him. 

Lyrics

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!
