Discover the magic that can happen when you look beneath the surface with Northern Ballet‚Äôs new Beauty & the Beast.
A handsome Prince is transformed into a Beast as punishment for his ugly arrogance. Only true love can break the spell - but who could love a monster like him?
A beautiful young woman is sent to live with the Beast. Despite the riches and attention he lavishes upon her, she is unable to love him as anything more than a friend.
As this classic story unfolds in an enchanting world inhabited by fairies, sprites and goblins, we discover that beauty is more than skin deep.
See the Company sparkle in a kaleidoscope of colour and Haute couture-style costumes, as breathtaking dancing is accompanied by an infectious score including music by Bizet, Debussy, Poulenc and Saint-Sa√ęns, played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
Set to delight adults and children alike, book now as Northern Ballet bring a new magic to this timeless fairytale.
