    Synopsis: 

    In this ravishing retelling of Beauty and the Beast from acclaimed creators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, actors interact seamlessly with breathtaking projected imagery to resurrect the darkness and sensuality of the original French fairy tale. A ghostlike horse charges through a tangled forest of thorns, a mirror breaks in an explosion of virtual glass, and a phantom moves in for his disembodied kiss, transforming an ageless story into a mercurial dream world charged with eroticism.

    Tale as Old as Time, With Video Projections

    Ben Brantley

    November 22, 2013: The divided self assumes ravishing forms in La Belle et la Bête, a show out of Montreal that is as lovely to look at as it is hard to listen to. Individuals split and multiply as if by enchanted atomic fission in Lemieux Pilon 4D Art’s modern retelling of that eternal favorite of blind date recaps, The Beauty and the Beast, which runs through Saturday at the Howard Gilman Opera House of the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
