Though it may be a 'tale as old as time,' Inland Pacific Ballet has found a way to make Beauty and the Beast terrifically new in its dazzling original adaptation of the fabled story. When her father is abducted after picking a rose from the garden of the mysterious Beast, Beauty offers herself in exchange for her parent's safety. Thus begins a journey of love and transformation for both herself and the Beast. Featuring a score of classical masters including Dvorak, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn, Beauty and the Beast also features spectacular sets, stunning costumes and amazing theatrical effects. The addition of sublime choreography makes this ballet a feast for the senses, one to be savored long after the lights come up. Learn More

American-born Barak Marshall—son of the great dancer, choreographer and musician Margalit Oved—has become one of Israeli dance’s most explosive artists. He served as the venerable Batsheva Dance Company’s first-ever house choreographer and has gone on to establish an impressive career on his own terms. Set to a score combining elements of Gypsy, Balkan, classical and rock music, Monger is bold, highly emotive physical-theater for 10 dancers. Originally commissioned by the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theater in Tel Aviv, the piece explores themes of power, free will and survival instinct through the story of a group of servants trapped in the basement of their abusive mistress’ home.
