The Little Mermaid
Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen by Janet Stanford
Music by Matthew Pierce
Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer
Choreography by Septime Webre and David Palmer
In this faithful re-telling of the Hans Christian Andersen original, the Little Mermaid falls in love with a human Prince, and longs to join him in his world above the waves. Despite the warnings of her Mer-family, the Little Mermaid seeks out the Enchantress who trades her pair of legs for the mermaid’s beautiful singing voice. A follow-up to the highly acclaimed The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe(2012), this collaboration between Imagination Stage and The Washington Ballet features dance, puppets, music, and singing in a highly theatrical and epic style of performance.
Best for ages 5+
