The Victorian State Ballet proudly presents The Little Mermaid in a full length magical classical ballet production!

The Little Mermaid is a new work in the VSB repertoire. Created in October 2018, 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 inhabited by a myriad of 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 the aid of a drowning sailor. Having saved his life and having delivered him back to shore, her curiosity is awakened. 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!

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