No rose without a thorn.
Alabama Dance Theatre is proud to present a world premier choreographed by it's very own resident choreographer Sara Sanford. Beauty & the Beast is set to be an extravagant performance with stunning new costumes, and scenery.
Inspired by the original french fairy tale, La Belle et la Bête, our story begins in the halls of a palace deep within the French countryside. A prince, cold and aloof by nature, pays no mind to the suffering of others. One night an Enchantress visits him disguised as an old beggar woman. When he turns her away, she reveals herself to him -- and in his horror he throws himself upon her mercy.
She transforms him into a hideous beast, and binds the spell with an enchanted rose. Each petal that falls brings him closer to death, only true love can break the spell.
Who could ever love a Beast?
