Birmingham Royal Ballet

Beauty and the Beast

A cruel prince, cursed to spend the rest of his life living in a fantastical castle with the animals he callously hunted, finds salvation in the heart of a beautiful girl.

Caught stealing a single rose, Belle’s father exchanges his daughter’s freedom for his own life. In his distant castle the Beast, stripped of his very humanity, must win her heart, or spend the rest of his life in bitter solitude...

Transformations, wild waltzes, soaring birds and a relationship between Belle and the Beast that is at first terrifying, but ultimately serene and beautiful, all combine in this darkly beautiful family fairytale.

All performances feature live music from the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.

Music Glenn Buhr
Choreography David Bintley
Designs Philip Prowse
Lighting Mark Jonathan
