The transformative power of French ballet

Thierry Malandain’s Beauty and the Beast is a neoclassical ballet with a rather intellectual interpretation. Filled with symbolisms, this love story about two people who are opposites in every way is a rich source of inspiration. Based on Jean Cocteau's 1946 film adaption, Malandain tells a rite of passage story aimed at resolving the duality of humanity: Beauty, representing the soul; and the Beast, the vital force and instincts. Elegant and fluent, his vision and Tchaikovsky’s music work together to bring to life a heartwarming fairytale, where dreams come true and love’s transformative powers are celebrated. The encounters between Belle and the Beast are the heart of the story, culminating in the ending when the Beast turns into a prince and the castle becomes bright. The courtly costumes, the Beast in a gauze mask and performance of the Malandain Ballet Biarritz all add to the visual magic of this beautiful work.
