la belle et la bete

Ask Katy

Hello! Philip Glass was in town this week playing live music during a screening of Cocteau's "La Belle et La Bete" at a local theater. While watching the film, I noticed the many visual similarities to the video for Arcadia's "Election Day." I understand that those similarities were intentional but my question is this: Was the title for Arcadia's album "So Red the Rose" inspired by the rose that Belle's father plucks from the Beast's garden in the story? Salut! Jeanette

NICK SAYS: The Arcadia video for "Election Day" was partly inspired by Cocteau , however the title of the album didn't bear any specific relation to his work. Having said that, I like your idea and shall tell everyone in the future that is where the title came from."
