GROUP ARTISTIC CULTURAL ASSOCIATION MAGNIFICAT "IL CANTIERE" of Trapani PRESENTS THE MUSICAL:" Amareoltre appearances ... THE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST"
Taken from the famous fairy tale Beauty and the Beast written by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont
Directed by Pippo Mancuso, Design by Fabio Pungitore and Choreography by Sissi Licata and Santy Constance.
The story is set in a small town in France, where they are destined to meet the fate of two characters: a haughty prince who lives in a castle in the woods at the edge of the village, which is transformed by a fairy because of its brutality and of his selfishness (because he refused hospitality to an old traveler who then turns out to be a beautiful fairy) in a horrible beast, destined to remain so until it had been shown to be able to love and be loved; and Belle, a girl dreamer and lover of literature, who lives with her father Maurice, an inventor bungler.
Belle dreams of changing your life to escape from the humdrum of everyday life in the village where he lives as well Gaston, a hunter, loved and respected by the rest of the village who is fascinated by the extraordinary beauty of Belle, but his rough manners and his haughty make it unbearable in the eyes of the girl, who rejects him. Belle confesses to the audience that dreams of a better life than that, unable to imagine that soon will be forced to barter his freedom with that of father, imprisoned by the beast after having taken refuge in his castle.
After a confrontational approach had the soul of the beast, furious and intolerant, unable to control his mood, thanks to the complicity of an unusual and exhilarating easement between the two comes a tender friendship, that will be the key to breaking the spell and bring the prince to his human form.
It ´s the story of human feelings more´ true, the beauty that is a concept that belongs from the otherwise, which is not related to the physical aspect but residing in the folds and in the movements of the soul, the true temple of beauty.
The musical invites us to return all of them human, in its sense more ´high and full.
