BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
2023-2024 In-School Tour
A princely (yet frightening!) beast finds redemption and transformation through the friendship of a brave young woman. Bubbling with memorable Mozart-like melodies, this re-telling of the beloved fairy tale is set in a fantastical South Asian context influenced by Bollywood style. Your student chorus members take the parts of exotic birds and enchanted (kid-sized) fruit. In true Opera for the Young fashion, this show will be animated…but definitely not animation!
Each OFTY performance provides a one-of-a-kind interactive event where your students have the opportunity to perform alongside our accomplished opera professionals. Entertaining and unforgettable, Beauty and the Beast will awe and inspire your students for years to come.
