Ballet Cymru performs sparkling new ballet of greatest love story ever told

A ruined merchant, lost in a deep forest; an exquisite garden by a magical palace; an enchanted Beast, furious and lonely; a promise to the merchant’s youngest daughter, Beauty, of a perfect red rose.

So the scene is set for the greatest love story ever told.

Critics Circle award-winning Ballet Cymru (formerly Independent Ballet Wales) returns to the Exeter Northcott tonight (Friday) and Saturday, with a sparkling new ballet, based on the fairytale Beauty and the Beast.

Stunning costumes, breathtaking choreography from award-winning Darius James and a new score from composer David Westcott, make this a perfect summer production for ballet lovers.

Performances 7.30pm with Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets are from £12 to £20, with half price concessions for students and under 26s and £2 off for 60+. Box office (01392) 493493.
