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

My husband and I are trying to better understand the culture of Asia. We were eager to see modern dance. We have found what they were looking. High skill, hard work, training and professionalism of each musician, without exception (12) requires me to put the highest score. Music .... not mellifluous. My husband and I jumped from their seats when the music suddenly burst into the room. Perhaps, the effect was conceived in advance, but annoying.
Acclaimed Taiwanese choreographer Lin Hwai-Min founded Cloud Gate II to foster new talent and showcase the next generation of Taiwanese dance. Dance Europe describes this innovative ensemble as, “a vibrant Company.” Cloud Gate II’s portfolio of work is celebrated around the world as some of the most innovative and creative contemporary dance to come out of Asia in decades. At the forefront of modern dance, Cloud Gate II dares to take beautiful risks that produce equally stunning outcomes.
