Act 1-Beauty and the Beast by Ballet Victoria, 12/30/10, Royal Theatre, Victoria, BC, Canada
Artistic Director and Choreographer: Paul Destrooper
A new, full-length ballet, inspired by the 1946 black and white film by Jean Cocteau. "I liked the story and saw the Cocteau movie when I was young", says Destrooper. "Jean Marais was a favourite actor of mine. I enjoyed the film, as it was very avantgarde. But our ballet is definately a family show with something for all ages. It's a love story with drama, passion and a moral, like in every good fable!"
