From November 24 – 26 and December 1 – 3, 2023, celebrate Christmas with the Calgary Opera! Beauty and the Beast is a one-act family opera that brings a timeless story about valuing kindness and character over superficial traits like physical beauty and social refinement. Vittorio Giannini composed this one-act opera in 1938, basing it on the classic fairytale. It delighted radio audiences then and now provides a charming entry point for children into the world of opera.
