The Little Mermaid presented by Victorian State Ballet & Byron Theatre

We are very proud to present this wonderfully enchanting Classical Ballet treat to our audiences!

3 Performances:
Friday 23rd April at 7:00pm & Saturday 24th April at 2:00pm & 6:30pm

The Little Mermaid is a new work in the Victorian State Ballet (VSB) repertoire.

The ballet follows the narrative based predominately on the story by Hans Christian Andersen. This widely known and much-loved story represented an opportunity to bring to life an underwater world in-habited by myriad sea folk and lively characters.

The choreography by Michelle Cassar de Sierra is a stunning display of classical ballet with elements of physical theatre that magically tell the tale.

The story unfolds in another world where a young mermaid dreams of a life beyond the sea. She bears witness to a shipwreck and comes to aid of a drowning sailor. Having saved his life and having delivered him back to shore, her curiosity is awakened, and throwing caution to the wind, she seeks the council of the wise sea crone who advises her that all gifts come with a warning and grants her the gift of transformation. Re-united with her sailor, she struggles to conform with human ways and quickly discovers life in a palace, chasing a prince, and navigating her new legs is not as easy as she dreamed!
