The curtain goes up … the audience gasps … and David McAllister’s spectacular Beauty unfolds like a rose, drawing you into a world of romance, wonder and imperial grandeur.
Set to Tchaikovsky’s celebrated score and blessed with breathtaking designs by Gabriela Tylesova, this reawakened classic will sweep you off your feet. Gleaming with Baroque golds and creams, glowing with vivid colour, and spilling over with fairies, princes, woodland nymphs and story-book charm, David McAllister’s Beauty casts a spell of delight all the way to true love’s kiss.
