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? Northern Ballet’s Beauty & the Beast brings one of the world’s most famous fairytales to life in a kaleidoscope of colour, set to an infectious score, including music by Saint-Saëns, Bizet and Debussy, played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia. Book now to see this remarkable company bring a new magic to this enduring story. A treasured classic reimagined.
