This time the ball's theme is inspired by Jean Cocteau's version of the classic fairytale "Beauty and the Beast".
The plot of Cocteau's film revolves around Belle's father who is sentenced to death for picking a rose from the Beast's garden. Belle offers to go back to the Beast in her father's place. The Beast falls in love with her and proposes marriage on a nightly basis which she refuses. Belle eventually becomes more drawn to the Beast, who tests her by letting her return home to her family and by telling her that if she doesn't return to him within a week, he will die of grief.
More info about the movie can be found on Wikipedia. Try to watch it before the ball!
