The Beauty and the Beast
The National TheatreLanguage
December 2, 2021
The story of a girl who falls in love with a monster, perceiving his inner self more than his – apparently – hideous face and body, is intended for children and adults alike.
In 1972, the Czech poet and playwright František Hrubín published the fairy tale in verse The Beauty and the Beast, included in the last collection he completed.
Inspired by a widely known ancient Indo-European myth, he imbued it with his singular vision of the world.
The timeless archetypal legend of the power and magic of love enthrals all generations.
