BRB Beauty & The Beast is coming to Plymouth
Wednesday 6 – Saturday 9 March
The storybook fantasy of Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Beauty and the Beast unfolds at Theatre Royal Plymouth from Wednesday 6 – Saturday 9 March. Love conquers all in David Bintley’s mysterious and magical production, which highlights the intriguing darkness of the original 18th century fairytale.
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 desperate father exchanges his youngest daughter’s freedom for his own life. In his distant castle the Beast, stripped of his handsome features and his very humanity, must win her heart, or spend the rest of his life in bitter solitude...
In this enchanting story of inner beauty, witness transformations, wild waltzes, soaring birds and a relationship between Belle and the Beast that is at first terrifying, but ultimately serene and beautiful.
This glorious retelling of Beauty and the Beast from Birmingham Royal Ballet features choreography by David Bintley, Music by Glen Buhr, designs by Philip Prowse and Lighting by Mark Jonathan.
In addition, there is also an opportunity to see Class On Stage on Saturday 9 March at 11.45am. If you’ve ever wondered what a ballet dancer does to prepare for a day of rehearsal and performance, this is a chance to watch an open Company class on stage and find out.
Tickets are priced from £12 and can be booked online at www.theatreroyal.com or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222. Tickets for Class On Stage are priced at £10.
