Komedija Theatre from Zagreb has already sold out twenty-seven performances of the hit musical Beauty and the Beast. The theatre’s top soloists, experienced choir, ballet and orchestra have brought the musical to life in all its glory at the Lisinski Concert Hall. 

Komedija Theatre from Zagreb, founded in 1950 and specialising in musicals, has worked in collaboration with Disney and Music Theatre International to bring this beloved romantic-fantasy musical to life. Beauty and the Beast is the story of the journey of Belle, a book-loving beauty who the Beast imprisons in his fairy-tale castle. Eventually, with Belle’s help, the Beast, or rather the prince, who has been turned into a monster by a witch because of his arrogance, learns to love and be loved. This is probably the only fairy tale in which the prince does not rescue the girl, but she rescues him.

The musical is directed and choreographed by Leo Mujić, and the cast brings the magic to life under the musical direction of Krešimir Batinić and Davor Kelić. The large cast includes Vanda Winter and Buga Marija Šimić in the title role of Beauty, and Igor Drvenkar and Ivan Glowatzky as the Beast. They are joined by Fabijan Pavao Medvešek and Matko Knešaurek (Gaston); Dražen Bratulić and Đani Stipaničev (Lumière); Igor Mešin and Goran Malus (Din Don); Renata Sabljak and Jasna Bilušić (Mrs Kamilica); Ognjen Milovanović and Jan Kovačić (Lefou), and many others.

The last performances of this cast in this season will take place on 3, 4, 6 and 7 June at the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall in Zagreb. You can also see the musical in Ljubljana on 3, 4, 6 and 7 July at 9.15 pm at the Križanke Summer Theatre. Tickets are available at the website, at the Križanka box office, at petrol stations and Eventim sales points.
