La Belle et la Bête

Thu, Nov 21, 2013, 7:30 pm


Season Ticket Price: $14—48 Full Price Tickets: $20—60

A disfigured recluse hides his pain in a lonely mansion, until a beautiful artist appears, nursing her own heartache. In this ravishing retelling of Beauty and the Beast, acclaimed creators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon transform a classic fairy tale into a grand feat of technological daring, charting breathtaking new territory in live performance.

Actors interact seamlessly with sophisticated projected imagery as a mercurial dream world unfolds. A ghostlike horse charges through a tangled forest of thorns, a mirror breaks in an explosion of virtual glass, and a phantom moves in for his disembodied kiss, hypnotizing us with this story about the redemptive power of love.
