Skylight Music Theatre presents…
Beauty and the Beast (Zemire Et Azor)
By composer André Grétry
Text by Jean François Marmontel
Based on “La Belle et la Bête” (Beauty and the Beast) by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont and
“Amour pour Amour” by P.C. Nivelle de La Chaussée
Based on the story of Beauty and the Beast, this opera showcases the well-known fairy tale in a new light while remaining true to its message of the redemptive power of love and the true nature of inner beauty.
After opening in Paris in 1771 to critical acclaim, the opera remained in the French repertory through 1821 and was said to be a favorite of Marie Antoinette.
Skylight’s production, an English adaptation by Colin Graham, marks the Wisconsin premiere of this opéra comique.
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
