"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.
The breathtaking dancing is accompanied by an infectious score including music by Bizet, Debussy, Poulenc and Saint-Saëns, played live by the Northern Ballet Sinfonia."
