An annual tradition: When the opera’s cast takes its well deserved summer break first-class guest ensembles give guest performances at the opera house. Thus musicals like “Cabaret“, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Tanguera” could be seen in Hannover over the past years in a packed house. This summer for the first time a Disney classic is to be staged.

Award-winning Musical
This Disney version is more than just a realisation of an old fairy tale. The animated feature film (1991) deals with wonderworlds and magic, fantasy and sentiment and features typical Disney characters and, of course, music. It won two Oscars including the Best Original Song Award. No wonder that “Beauty and the Beast” has become a succesfull musical that has won the hearts of over 35 million people worldwide.

The story
It’s the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. Belle takes the place of her imprisoned father in the beast’s castle which is filled with dancing tea cups and singing chandlesticks. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
