The Little Mermaid - Beneath the Surface
Northern Ballet's The Little Mermaid will premiere at Mayflower Theatre in September, and you can get a glimpse of it before anyone else with this live stream… Beneath the Surface, led by Northern Ballet's David Nixon, delves deeper into how they’ve transformed Hans Christian Andersen’s heartbreaking tale into a ballet.
The behind the scenes livestream gives you the background to the ballet, an introduction to some of the main ballet dancers including Ashley Dixon (who you may have seen in last years Beauty and the Beast) as well as a special look into the costumes and how dancer Abigail Prudames got to grips with dancing with a tail.
The Little Mermaid follows the story of when a young mermaid is finally allowed her first glimpse of life beyond the ocean, she is enthralled by what she sees. After falling desperately in love with a man, she will do anything she can to live a human life. Northern Ballet’s beautiful new ballet will reimagine the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale and take you on a journey beneath the waves.
