The Little Mermaid

Victorian State Ballet The Little Mermaid

See one of the world’s best-loved fairy tales brought to life on stage in a superb production by the Victorian State Ballet.

The Little Mermaid follows the narrative based predominately on the story by Hans Christian Andersen.

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 the aid of a drowning sailor. Having saved his life and 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. Reunited with her sailor, she struggles to conform with human ways and quickly discovers that life in a palace, chasing a prince and navigating her new legs is not as easy as she dreamed!

Come and see the magnificent costumes full of vibrant colour, sets and props accentuating the beauty and splendour of this magical place, together with the outstanding skill, artistry and technique of the artists of the Victorian State Ballet. A must see performance for the whole family!
