• Beauty and the Beast Comes to Arcadia


    More southern California audiences will have the opportunity to see Inland Pacific Ballet’s Beauty and the Beast when it moves to its final venue at the Arcadia Performing Arts Center for two matinee performances at 2:00 p.m. on May 10 and May 11.

    Tickets and information are available online at ipballet.org.

    “We are thrilled to once again bring exciting, new work to the local stage, both for our ever expanding audience and our amazing dancers,” states Artistic Director Victoria Koenig.

    “We’ve brought together a wonderfully creative artisitc team, and through their collaborative process a spectacular production of this well known story is coming together. After months of work, sharing ideas, changing our minds, and delving deeper into the work, the story and the characters, everything has fallen into place.”

    “It has been inspiring,” says Koenig, “and I think Beauty and the Beast is one of the most beautiful ballets we have produced.”

    “The basic elements familiar to fans of the Disney movie are there, but in true IPB fashion, we have put our own twist on the story,” says Koenig. “Audiences won’t see the Disney invention, Gaston, nor do we have dancing tea cups, but I think they will fall in love with the enchanting band of fairies who befriend Beauty, be delighted by the castle gnomes and be very entertained by
    Beauty’s quarrelling sisters (characters borrowed from the original story). And of course, mostly they will be wowed by the power of the relationship between Beauty and the Beast and their amazing dancing.”

    Events take place at the Arcadia Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 10 at 2 p.m. and Sunday, May 11, at 2 p.m. Please call (626) 821-1781 for more information.
