The timeless French fairytale.

Once upon a time there was a rich merchant who had three daughters. The youngest was named Belle or Beauty. Hidden in the depths of a dark forest was the castle of the Beast, a monster who was very ugly. One day, the merchant picked a rose in one of the Beast's gardens. To save her father, Belle had to be given to the Beast…

The story tells of two worlds, that of riches tainted with unhappiness for the Beast, and that of poverty marked with virtue for Belle. Values are inverted to tell us that what is essential is not visible to the eyes. Belle can see beyond appearances whereas her sisters are greedy and envious. Their father is weak but loving… The Beast, who bears the burden of ugliness, seeks to show what he really is.

The characters of Beauty and the Beast live in a kingdom of pretence full of unexpected twists.
