Presented by Skylight Music Theatre

Baroque opera, in English, returns to Skylight

Based on the story of Beauty and the Beast, this 1771 comic Baroque opera by French composer André Grétry showcases the well-known fairy tale in a new light, while remaining true to its message of the redemptive power of love and the true nature of inner beauty. The production will also feature dance.

The Music

A playful and effervescent score with lush, melodic orchestrations and ornamental flourishes, including La Fauvette, in which the soprano imitates birdsong.

The Credits

French composer André Grétry

French text by Jean François Marmontel based on La Belle et la bête (Beauty and the Beast) by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, and Amour pour amour by P. C. Nivelle de La Chaussé.
