Audiences of all ages delight in Hans Christian Anderson’s story as it comes to life in Inland Pacific Ballet’s The Little Mermaid. Critics called this enchanting ballet “…visually stunning…an underwater Lion King,” where puppetry and dancing combine to create a magical ocean world.” This spectacular landmark production is one of IPB’s original ballets adapted from adventure-filled stories. Magnificent sets feature a live shipwreck and a sweeping sound collage includes music by classical composers Maurice Ravel, Claude Debussy, Benjamin Britten, Antonin Dvorak and Ralph Vaughan Williams. Innovative aerial technology has under-the-sea creatures spinning and swirling on the stage, and a surprise ending awaits you! Meet the cast after the performance for photos and autographs.
