" A gorgeous rendering of a family favourite"

One of the UK’s best loved companies, Birmingham Royal Ballet returns with a stunning family favourite from David Bintley.

In Beauty and the Beast, a cruel Prince, cursed to spend his life living in a castle 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, rich choreography brings to life magical transformations, wild waltzes, and a relationship that is at first terrifying, but ultimately beautiful.

***** "Pure magic"
