LA BELLE ET LA BETE Comédie Musicale
Literary adaptation of the novel by M.me Leprince de Baumont
Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont was born in Rouen, France, in 1711. She gave up on the religious life for which she was destined and, instead, worked as an instructress, first at the Lorena Court and then in London, where she had moved after the cancellation of her marriage. There she established a periodic magazine for young adults about scientific and literary topics and started her writer career. She was the teacher of children of the polite society and composed pedagogical texts, often moralistic. She became identified as being the first writer who adapted their own style to the abilities of younger readers comprehension. Her first novel, Le Triomphe de la Vérité, was published in 1748. She owed her success to the rewriting of her famous folk tale La Belle et La Bête, published in 1757 in Le Magasin des Enfant. Sadly she died in Chavanod, in 1780.
