Watch a breathtaking performance of Beauty and the Beast
From 30 July 2014 To 10 August 2014Address
Staatstheater Hannover Opernplatz 1, 30159 Hannover
A city is not complete without an occasional performance of the original Disney musical "Beauty and the Beast" and in Hanover this fairy tale is performed this Summer at the opera house from July the 30th till August the 10th.
The Disney show is actually part of the annual Hanoverian tradition to let guest performers take over the show when the regular opera singers are granted a well deserved summer.
The first-class guest ensembles performing this Disney version is more than just the realisation of the well-known fairy tale about Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress.
The performance is breathtaking and will enthrall audiences as they see Belle take the place of her imprisoned father in the beast's castle which is filled with dancing tea cups and singing candle sticks.
If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household are doomed...
