Beauty and the Beast


Beauty and the Beast

Birmingham Royal Ballet

UK Tour

Until 4 May 2019

After 24 years at the helm of the company, David Bintley is stepping down as Artistic Director at Birmingham Royal Ballet. His final season in charge looks to the future with many new works by young choreographers, but also features some favourites of Bintley’s own making, such as this gothic, atmospheric adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Alongside the central love story, Bintley’s version delves deeper into the relationships between humans and the natural world, making it darker than Disney, but still very much a family-friendly show.

“David Bintley’s take on the classic fairy tale is a marvellous piece of storytelling.”
