TBT will launch their new season in Dallas with an aptly timed performance of Beauty and the Beast, September 7-10 at Winspear Opera House, and at Fort Worth’s Bass Performance Hall, September 29-October 1. The Company’s performance will follow the classic storybook tale of Belle, the Beast and his enchanted servants.
Lew Christensen choreographed Beauty and the Beast in 1958 for the San Francisco Ballet’s 25th anniversary, and says this about the original production: “The old moral reads that beauty is only skin deep. So, this ballet says, is beastliness. To love is to be human, and it is no less, to humanize.”
