Belle du jour
Texas Ballet Theater revives this stunning audience favorite in May 2024! Featuring Tchaikovsky's captivating score, a dramatic adventure, an unexpected love story, and a cast of wonderful characters, Lew Christensen's quintessential imagining is the perfect way to enjoy this tale as old as time.
What is the story?
Whilst wandering in the enchanted forest that surrounds a mysterious and imposing castle, Belle is presented with a red rose by her father. But the master of the land, the terrifying Beast, outraged by this simple gesture, captures Belle, and banishes her father from the Kingdom.
Once within The Beast's clutches, Belle is presented with riches and wonder, but none can win her heart or suppress her desire to see her family. When she manages to escape, the Beast's heart breaks, perhaps forever. A red rose is delivered to Belle she must now decide what her heart really feels.
