The highly-acclaimed musical Beauty and the Beast will come to Dubai for the first time in January 2016 as part of its international tour. Based on the Oscar-winning animated Disney feature film of the same name, the musical first premiered on Broadway more than 20 years ago and has since gone on to become one of the longest-running and highest-grossing shows in the history of theatre. Not to mention the show has travelled to 22 countries, been watched by more than 35 million people and translated into eight languages. Now Beauty and the Beast is set for the Dubai stage with music and the screenplay created by theatre giants Alan Manken and Linda Woolverton.

Beauty and the Beast will run from January 6-9, 2016, at the World Trade Centre. Tickets can be purchased at Tixbox.
