Based on the original fairytale, this family-friendly adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is sure to delight audiences of all ages.
When a wealthy merchant’s ship is destroyed in a storm, he leaves his family to recover the wreckage. However, he becomes lost and finds a beautiful castle ruled by a horrid Beast. The youngest daughter, Belle, goes to find him, and in doing so, she begins an adventure that challenges everything she thought she knew about family, duty, identity, and love.
This powerful opera speaks to modern audiences as it grapples with issues of greed, free will, and the reality that things are not often what they seem.
