La Bella y la Bestia


La Bella y la Bestia (Beauty and the Beast) is a classic tale that tells the story of an arrogant and selfish prince who lived in a magnificent castle. One winter night an old beggar woman arrived in the castle and asked for shelter. In return for his hospitality she gave him a red rose. The prince, seeing her dirty and ragged appearance, did not let her in.
Then the old woman became beautiful enchantress and, as punishment for his evil, turned the Prince into a hideous beast and all his servants into enchanted objects.
The sorceress gave the prince a rose: if he found love before the last petal falls, the spell would break; if not, he would remain a beast forever. Meanwhile, Maurice -an inventor who lives in the neighboring village- got lost in the woods and finds the castle. The Beast made him a prisoner until his daughter Bella -a beautiful young dreamer- found him and decided to exchange for him.

La Bella y Bestia is the classic Disney tale turned into a musical full of magic and poetry which has won millions of hearts worldwide.
The tender love story between Beauty and the Beast -along with a design full of imagination- introduces the audience into a world of fantasy and surprise where we will find the universal message this story gives us (beauty is inside) with the company of deliciously unique characters.
