One of the world’s most loved fairy tale classics is retold through a magical ballet production. Featuring the stunning artists of VSB, and superb choreography which honours the spirit of this captivating work. An entertaining and enjoyable experience for the whole family! 

A full-length classical ballet production of the traditional tale, Beauty & the Beast is one of the world’s most loved classics.  

Following VSB's sell-out seasons since its Australian Premier in 2018, we are proud to present this spectacular original ballet, to audiences in 2024. 

Our production is based on both the original tale by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, and the screenplay for Disney by Linda Woolverton, bringing to life a captivating display of the beloved characters that we all know and love from other films and musicals.  

Within spectacular classical ballet choreographies, our version seeks to retell this magical story and to draw the audience right inside the spellbinding moments, transporting through to the very moving transformation, grand waltz and happily-ever-after final scenes.  

VSB’s unique ballet version creates a fresh touch while maintaining true to the essence of the original storyline. Highlighting the characters in the story through beautiful classical ballet is a compelling feature of this production.  

We are delighted to bring Beauty & the Beast to the stage, featuring the stunning artists of the Victorian State Ballet, and magical original choreography of Michelle Cassar De Sierra.

“The narrative as it unfolds is easy to follow, and the performances by Victorian State Ballet’s dancers were fresh and engaging. Michelle Cassar de Sierra’s choreography is full of movement and vigour, richly colourful and vivid” - Dance Australia March 2020
