A cruel Prince, cursed to spend the
rest of his life living in a fantastical
castle with the animals he callously
hunted, finds salvation in the heart of
a beautiful girl.
Caught stealing a
single rose, Belle’s desperate father
exchanges his youngest daughter’s
freedom for his own life. In his
distant castle the Beast, stripped of
his handsome features and his very
humanity, must win her heart, or
spend the rest of his life in bitter
Witness transformations, wild
waltzes, soaring birds and a
relationship between Belle and the
Beast that is at first terrifying, but
ultimately serene and beautiful.
