Here are two video clips from Beauty and the Beast, choreographed by our own Director David Bintley.

In the first, we see the two title characters meet for the first time, with the Beast’s humanity struggling against his animal instincts.

This second clip comes at the start of Act II, and sees the Beast throwing a lavish ball for Belle. She has been living at his castle for some time now, and is starting to see beyond his terrifying appearance. However she does not share the love that he feels for her, and rushes from the room in tears when he asks for her hand in marriage.
