The original soundtrack of 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken performed live for a magical movie on a big screen. *
With "Beauty and the Beast," Disney created a masterpiece of animation cinema in 1991, which was subsequently crowned with over two dozen awards - including two Oscars®. In 2017, director Bill created Condon an opulent and visually intoxicating live action adaptation. This popular, timeless Disney classic. Now you can relive this intoxicating, touching fairy tales in the concert hall in new experience splendor. While the film on the big screen shines.
"Beauty and the Beast" tells the fantastic story of Belle (Emma Watson), a radiantly beautiful and independent young woman, who captured by a beast (Dan Stevens) in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the enchanted, kind-hearted staff of the castle (including Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson) and learns that behind the hideous exterior of the Beasts a true prince with a big heart hides.
Composer Alan Menken returned for the live action adaptation. For his work on "Beauty and the Beast", he won two 1992 Oscars ("Best Film Music" and "Best Song"). Building on this work, Menken revised his original film music into a fresh orchestral score: In addition to the beloved songs of 1991 – a.o. / Belle, Be Our Guest / and / Beauty and the Beast / - with lyrics by Howard Ashman, Menken composed three new songs and for their lyrics his longtime colleague Tim Rice is responsible.
Immerse yourself in this timeless Disney classic of a fairytale world!
