Brandywine Ballet, Chester County’s premier, regional ballet company, is proud to announce its 2017 spring production of Beauty & The Beast to be held May 19 – 21, 2017. Brandywine Ballet continues its residency on the historic campus of West Chester University at Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall on 700 S. High Street, West Chester, PA.
This production of Beauty & The Beast is a new, full-length work based on the original story by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. Resident Choreographer, Nancy Page has created a whimsical ballet in this new version of the classic fairy tale. A powerful spell is cast to tell a story of family, love, and passion as Beauty embarks on a journey through the forest and into a magical castle to meet the Beast. Enchanting characters of water flowers, bluebirds, and roses come to life to tell a tale of overcoming one’s fears and vulnerability, and the lesson that beauty is so much more than skin deep.
