Beauty & the Beast

Discover the magic that can happen when you look beneath the surface with Northern Ballet’s new Beauty & the Beast.

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.
