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
Lift your soul for a spell with this vibrant new version of André Grétry’s heartwarming 18th century opera. Based upon the original fairy tale, this inventive adaptation is a visual spectacle featuring dance and larger-than-life puppetry designed by Obie Award winner James Ortiz, who also serves as director. Sung in English and performed by a live orchestra, this poignant score is reminiscent of early Mozart operas.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
