Birmingham Royal Ballet presents Beauty and The Beast at The Lowry, Salford, March 20–23.

Love conquers all in David Bintley’s production, which highlights the intriguing darkness of the original 18th century fairytale. A cruel Prince, cursed to spend the rest of his life living in a fantastical castle with the animals he callously hunted, finds salvation in the heart of a beautiful girl.
