WCAS - Opera Iowa presents Beauty and the Beast
Music by André Grétry
Text, arrangement and concept by Joshua Borths
Enjoy a twist on the classic fairytale with the world premiere tour of Beauty and the Beast! The characters of Belle’s world are obsessed with how they are perceived by the world around them. The Prince was the worst example of this until the Spirit of the Rose cursed him so that his body would reflect his soul, and everyone would see him for the beast he truly was. With the help of Belle, the Spirit of the Rose, and a magic mirror, the Beast will try to change his heart and break the curse.
