Ballet Theatre of Maryland's artistic director, Dianna Cuatto, has opened the 31st season for the state's premier professional ballet company with a proven winner, "Beauty and the Beast. " Cuatto's choreography, combining romantic elements of Jean Cocteau's 1946 film with hints of Disney's 1991 animated version, revealed new vistas for adults while captivating children as well at the show's performances Oct. 18-20. Never one to rest on previous seasons' laurels or plaudits, Cuatto polished her choreography from 2009, when the Ballet Theatre last presented this show, to reveal sparkling new facets reflecting her dancers' growing expertise.

Chambers Jr. Council Chambers — "which I'm sure will be known as the Chambers Chambers," said Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen.
