Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography by Lew Christensen
Three performances to choose from!
Venture into a colorful world of magic and enchantment with the time honored tale of Beauty and the Beast. Set to a lyrical score by Tchaikovsky, this NBT Company Premiere is a visually spectacular production celebrating the transformative power of love. From the mysterious forest filled with leaping stags and lively nymphs, to the beastly, imposing castle and its cursed occupants, this ballet is a feast for the senses. First created for San Francisco Ballet by the legendary Lew Christensen, the performance proved so popular it was revived each year for a decade. A generation later, it remains one of the best loved stories of all time and a heartwarming fairy tale perfect for the entire family.
Prior to all performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet, with special guests, multi-media presentations and more. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain at 1:15pm on Saturday, 6:45pm on Saturday and 1:15pm on Sunday.
