LA Opera presents:

La Belle et la Bête

LaBelleLaBete

Individual tickets on sale June 18

A familiar fairy tale takes on a broader and deeper subject—the transformative power of love and art. Jean Cocteau’s stunningly beautiful 1946 cinematic masterpiece is recast with an enchanting new soundtrack by Philip Glass. The modern maestro works his own magic around the shimmering spectacle by replacing the film’s original music and dialogue with nothing less than a classical opera, performed by live singers synchronized with the actors in the film.

Three special presentations at the spectacularly restored Theatre at Ace Hotel will feature four vocalists performing along with the Philip Glass Ensemble, conducted by Michael Riesman.
