New Haven, CT, May 1, 2024—One of the most beloved stories is coming to New Haven when New Haven Ballet presents Beauty and the Beast at the Shubert Theatre on May 25 at 1:00 p.m. The Ballet also performs excerpts from the classical repertory of Paquita.


Angela He and Timothy Fountain lead the cast as Belle and the Beast, with all of the familiar characters, including Cogsorth, Lumiere, and Mrs. Potts, also adding joy to the winsome and talented cast of dancers from the School.


“Beauty and the Beast touches hearts for a reason,” notes Artistic Director Lisa Kim Sanborn. “With humor, warmth, and a bit of nostalgia, it is easy to understand why this story and these characters have become worldwide favorites. The story is engaging and relevant today on so many levels. The dancers are fantastic, and we are excited for audience members, young and old, to see the production, which features new sets, costumes, and choreography,” Sanborn adds.


New Haven Ballet’s Student Company also presents excerpts from Paquita, with music by Ludwig Minkus and choreography after Marius Petipa, and a special presentation by Shared Ability, New Haven Ballet’s outreach program led by Kerry Kincy that features artists with and without disabilities.


The Shubert Theatre is located at 247 College Street in the heart of New Haven’s popular downtown restaurant and shopping district. Tickets cost $26-$59 and may be purchased at or the Shubert Box Office at Tel. (203) 562-5666.
