The Story of Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bete) is a traditional fairy tale written by French novalist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villenueve and published in 1740. An arrogant young prince and his castle's servants fall under the spell of a wicked enchantress, who turns him into the hideous Beast until he learns to love and be loved in return. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle enters the Beast's castle after he imprisons her father Maurice. With the help of his enchanted servants, Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation. This story of transformation and enduring happiness is a tale as old as time, now freshly told through the non-verbal expressions in a variety of dance styles, sign language and melody to discover inner beauty as pure love.
