Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre will bring its visually spectacular production of “Beauty and the Beast” to Greensburg on March 20, a month after the Pittsburgh premiere of its revival. It will be the company's third performance in the Palace Theatre.

The ballet was created by Lew Christensen for San Francisco Ballet's 25th anniversary in 1958 and proved so popular, it was revived every year until 1967, and intermittently thereafter.

Christensen picked music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky to underscore his vision of the fairy tale of transformative love.

The audience also is invited to a pre-performance talk at 6 p.m. by the ballet's artistic director Terrence Orr, who performed in “Beauty and the Beast” as a young dancer with San Francisco Ballet.

The performance starts at 7 p.m. March 20 at the Palace Theatre, Greensburg. Admission is $25 to $74. V.I.P. seats, in prime locations and including a post-performance reception with the artists, are $150.
