La Belle et La Bete brings Ballet to Versaille.
Maybe your pirouette has all the elegance of a flailing drunk on a dancefloor. Maybe you don't know what a pirouette is. No matter, because you can leave all that to the experts. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the utter beauty that is La Belle et La Bete (that's Beauty and the Beast for those of us who weren't born wearing a beret).
What makes this performance extra incredible is the venue. Enter the grounds of Versailles palace and find your way into the magnificent building that is The Royal Opera of Versailles. If you've never felt like a chic French aristocrat surrounded by drapes of velvet and chandeliers dripping in crystals, now's your chance. Soak in the opulence of the surrounds as the first strains of Tchaikovsky fill the air.
And then, of course, there's the dancers...
Heart-wrenchingly beautiful orchestral music and stunning interiors aside, you'll then be treated to the star attraction of the evening: the dancers.
22 dancers will leap, twirl, arabesque and pirouette their way across the stage, under the direction of acclaimed choreographer Thierry Malandain. Every emotion expressed in a language of lithe limbs, every movement unravelling the iconic story of beauty meets beast, higher soul versus animal nature, the conquering forces of love.
This breathtaking evening is not to be missed. Don't make us send that suave talking candelabra over to convince you — book your tickets now!
