Synopsis

'A gorgeous rendering of a family favourite' WHATSONSTAGE

Birmingham Royal Ballet returns to Southampton with a stunning family favourite from David Bintley. In Beauty and the Beast, a cursed Prince finds salvation in the heart of a beautiful girl. The girl, a hideous beast, a golden ballroom full of animals, two haughty sisters and a grumpy grandmother dance through the unfolding pages of Philip Prowse's stunning storybook set. To a score by Glenn Buhr, played live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, the rich choreography brings to life magical transformations, wild waltzes, and a relationship that is at first terrifying, but ultimately beautiful.
