Presented by Safe Haven Ballet
Safe Haven Ballet will grace The Music Hall with its production of Beauty & The Beast for one spellbinding performance only. This production features choreography from Columbia City Ballet’s Director, William Starrett, and music composed by Thomas Semanski. The performance will be held on Saturday, May 6 at 4:30pm. A love story perfect for all ages, Beauty & The Beast is a captivating fairytale that blends magic with artistry.
The Beast’s character is created to come off artistically elegant with a touch of menace, and Belle from the original fairytale leads this dramatic performance emerging as the merchant’s daughter chosen by the Beast to be his bride. The dancers of Safe Haven Ballet couple beautiful lines and riveting stage presence to tell a beautiful tale where love conquers all. Choreographer William Starrett says, “My goal has always been to allow the audience to discover the art of ballet and love it as much as I do. To see how amazing the ballet is.” This classic story mixed with despair, travail, patience, and glory is fitting for the whole family.
