Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” opened in Macao for its limited run, delighting the audience in the packed Venetian Theatre. The original Broadway musical spectacular is one of the longest-running and highest-grossing Broadway shows of all time. The classic love story will play at The Venetian Theatre until July 26 as part of an international tour. Tickets are on sale at all Cotai Ticketing™ box offices for the remaining dates but are selling fast.
Jointly produced by Broadway Entertainment Group and NETworks Presentations with Garuda Indonesia as the official airline sponsor for the Macao show, the show’s 20th anniversary has seen the original Broadway creative team reunite to bring the musical back to life for an international audience. “Beauty and the Beast” tells the story of Belle and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped by a spell placed on him by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will be broken and he will be transformed back into his former self. Starring Hilary Maiberger as Belle and Darick Pead as the Beast, the show is a lively and colourful mix of acting and dancing with beautiful costumes and wonderful songs, including the Oscar-winning duet “Beauty and the Beast.”
The excitement ahead of the first performance could be felt in the air at The Venetian Macao and as those lucky theatregoers who managed to get tickets to opening night left the theatre it was clear that the show had lived up to its reputation.
As the curtain came down on what is sure to be a successful run at The Venetian Macao, the crowd showed their appreciation with a thunderous round of applause for the talented performers, the incredible costumes and the beautiful sets.
Bringing authentic Broadway shows like “Beauty and the Beast” to Macao is a clear example of Sands China’s multi-tiered entertainment strategy in action and a signal of intent that shows the company’s dedication to catering to a broader customer base and further diversifying the entertainment on offer in Macao. “Beauty and the Beast” follows the successful staging of another Broadway musical at The Venetian Theatre earlier this year.
