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

About the Ticket Supplier: Los Angeles Ballet
The debut of Los Angeles Ballet on December 2, 2006, was met with standing ovations and critical acclaim. “A Company is Born”, declared LA Times dance critic Lewis Segal in his December 4, 2006 review. “… there’s plenty of promise in the homegrown production by company artistic directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary.”
Los Angeles Ballet’s original production of The Nutcracker reflects the city in which it is based. It introduced the first of many seasons of ballet made fresh, alluring, and entertaining. With choreography by Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary and set design by LA designer and illustrator Catherine Kanner, the production is the first to honor the company’s mission to establish an artistic collaboration that invites all genres to participate. Choreographers, composers, dancers, musicians, and set, costume and lighting designers, come together in Los Angeles Ballet for a new era of performing arts innovation.
