The Little Mermaid

Estate theatre

Far away, at the very bottom of the ocean, which no anchor can reach and no human eye can see, is the home of marine beings. Dolphins, mermaids, the Sea King, his old mother and his daughter, the Little Mermaid, whose skin is as clear and smooth as a rose petal, eyes as blue as the deepest water, and whose greatest pleasure is to listen to stories about the human world far above. When she stands by the window and looks up through the dark blue, the Little Mermaid thinks of a big, noisy city on the land. No one else longs as much as she does for that world. Thus begins the story of the Little Mermaid’s true love for the terrestrial Prince, for whom she sacrifices the most precious things she has – her voice and her life. The new ballet production, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s famed fairy tale and to music by the Czech composer Zbyněk Matějů, delivered by the National Theatre Orchestra, will be choreographed by Jan Kodet and directed by the acclaimed SKUTR tandem (Martin Kukučka and Lukáš Trpišovský). The performance, abounding in poetic dance scenes, is intended not only for parents and children but for everyone who loves this immortal story.

Premiere 10.11. 2016
