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

This was a first-rate performance with both the instrumentation and the dancing being superb. There was incredible variety with dances from different areas of mostly the Balkan pennisula. The male dancers were very athletic and performed entertaining feats that were in the "impossible" realm. The female dancers were very graceful. The small on-stange orchestra was composed of extremely talented musicians who were obviously having a lot of fun.
During the past 40 years, Frula has given more than 7,000 performances throughout the world. In the United States alone, Frula has toured 27 times, appearing in the best halls, such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington. Presenting a rich and colorful program, Frula performs folk dances from all regions of the former Yugoslavia, as well as from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Albania. Breathtaking technique transforms folk into a theatrical show. Dazzling authentic costumes, athletic prowess, cultural pride, and the performers’ inner joy, combined with musicians, dancers, singers, and technical expertise, proving that Frula is an exciting perpetuator of cultural heritage.
