Where: Ahmanson Theatre at the Music Center, 135 North Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012
When: November 21-29, 2013
This visually stunning reimagining paints the beloved tale as a gothic romance, complete with fairies and vampires. With decadent scenery and costumes, plus fully immersive sound, this is Bourne at his most inventive. The Guardian called the show “an eye-popping achievement.”
