The familiar fairy tale, told through music and dance, brings magic and beauty to the Theatre Royal
The delight found in this production was the coming together of all its elements, who delivered an experience that was not only entertaining but truly magnificent. The opening dance of the second act, involving the Beast, Beauty and the prince was delivered with such poignancy, that it was as if I was alone in the theatre witnessing the love sadness and longing unfold. The final wedding scene filled the senses as if there were a hundred not fourteen dancers on the stage, and there was of course, glitter. As my friend Lou said – ‘It was more than fab.’
Northern Ballet's Beauty & the Beast runs at Theatre Royal until Saturday 7 October 2023.
