Birmingham Royal Ballet will return to Sunderland Empire with the enchanting and sumptuous production of Beauty and the Beast from 28 – 30 March 2019 for 4 performances only.
Prepare to witness transformations, wild waltzes, soaring birds and a relationship between Belle and the Beast that is at first terrifying, but ultimately serene and beautiful in David Bintley’s glorious Gothic ballet.
A cruel Prince, cursed to spend the rest of his life living in a fantastical castle with the animals he callously hunted, finds salvation in the heart of a beautiful girl.
Caught stealing a single rose, Belle’s desperate father exchanges his youngest daughter’s freedom for his own life. In his distant castle the Beast, stripped of his handsome features and his very humanity, must win her heart, or spend the rest of his life in bitter solitude…
