Further info

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. Afraid at first she soon learns that she has nothing to fear except that the Beast longs for a love she cannot return. 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 Saint-Säens, Bizet, Debussy, Poulenc and Glazunov, played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

Beauty & the Beast delights adults and children alike, book now as Northern Ballet brings a new magic to this timeless fairytale.

Audio Described Performance on Saturday 27 October
