Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
A tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast
Does this lyrics mean anything to you? Find it familiar? How about it being sung?
If this rings a bell, you have watched the Disney fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast when you were young.
You will be pleased to know that Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, the award-winning smashhit Broadway musical spectacular, is opening in Singapore for the first time. As part of their 20th anniversary celebrations, the original Broadway creative team has reunited to bring this acclaimed production to over 12 countries for a first-ever International tour.
The musical is directed by Rob Roth and choreographed by Matt West, with Costume Design by Ann Hould-Ward (Tony Award® winner for her work on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast), Lighting Design by Natasha Katz, Scenic Design by Stanley A. Meyer, Sound Design by John Petrafesa Jr. and Music Supervision by Michael Kosarin.
Is it just a fairy tale? Perhaps an enchanted castle sounds too far from reality but when you watch the story of Belle play out before your eyes, you will discover that perhaps you can relate to her. A girl obsessed with books, raised by a father who invents the craziest things, it is no wonder she is outcasted by her community. No, they do not want women to think, to imagine, to dream and that was exactly what Belle did.
What should you expect from this production? The backdrop, the curtains, the props, everything screams fairy tale about it and it is just so beautiful. It is a child’s greatest fantasy, to witness this Disney fairy tale unveiling in front of him live. Wait till you see the magical rose that led to the start of the enchantment and the lights go crazy when the Beast goes wild. Simply amazing. You just have to keep your eyes peeled if you don’t want to miss anything.
This play was particularly entertaining thanks to the enchanted personalities living in the castle. Watch a flirty candlestick, a wound up clock, a motherly teapot and more characters come to life right in front of your eyes.
As Belle and Beast each experience a journey of growth, they take the audience through it with their own songs. A time of song and dance awaits you! If you think that it is just a typical romance story, you are wrong. Watch the Beast in action as he slowly grows to love Belle and becomes a gentleman. We expect him to be fierce and scary but he is more than that and we leave you to discover more about him on your own. Come and share the love with both Belle and Beast at Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
