Beauty and the Beast unfolds through beautiful ballet
Join Ballet Theatre UK as they retell a tale as old as time … Beauty and the Beast at The Lights on Saturday, 15 December at 2pm or 7pm
Inspired by the original story, this production follows Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village. When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her capture by the Beast, a grisly and fearsome monster.
Little does Belle know that the Beast is a Prince cursed by a magical Enchantress. The only way that the Beast may become human again is if he learns to love and be loved in return. The curse set by the Enchantress is bound by a magical rose. If the final petal falls all hope will be lost and he will remain a Beast forever.
Their feelings grow ever deeper as the clock ticks and petals continue to fall – will they confess their love for one another before it is too late?
Set to a stunning classical score this production will showcase new choreography by Artistic Director, Christopher Moore, as well as feature new sets and costumes created especially for this production.
