Beauty & The Beast: Theatre Royal


This winter audiences will be transported to the heart of one of the world's most famous fairytales as Northern Ballet brings its reimagining of Beauty & the Beast to Newcastle Theatre Royal for the first time from Tue 8 - Sat 12 November 2016.

With a kaleidoscope of colour and haute couture style costumes, the festive season favourite Beauty & the Beast is a treasured classic for the whole family to enjoy and marks the return of Northern Ballet to the Theatre Royal following the successful run  of The Nutcracker in 2015.

Choreographed by Artistic Director David Nixon OBE, Beauty & the Beast tells the story of a vain and superficial Prince. Transformed into a Beast as punishment for his arrogance, his only chance is for true love to break the spell - but who could love a monster like him?

Beauty & the Beast will take audiences on a journey into an enchanting world inhabited by fairies, goblins and sprites. Set to an infectious score played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, including music by Saint-Saëns, Bizet, Poulenc, Glazunov and Debussy, this magical family show proves that love can conquer all.
