PNC Presents Beauty and the Beast

Beauty comes from within. So does the nature of the Beast. See both sides of the story in Beauty and the Beast. The classic tale weaves a tender love story between the gnarled trees of the enchanted forest. Audiences are offered a glimpse at unexpected romance, heartbreak and the power of love through striking scenery and stunning neoclassical choreography.

Choreography: Lew Christensen
Music: P.I. Tchaikovsky
