Beauty & the Beast


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

Following sell-out seasons since its Australian premier in 2018, Victorian State Ballet (VSB) are proud to present this spectacular original ballet to audiences in 2024.

This 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 from the films and musical.

Within spectacular classical ballet choreographies, this 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.
