Show Information


After hosting the World Premiere of this stunning production in 2017, Northern Ballet bring The Little Mermaid back to Southampton this October.

When a young mermaid is finally allowed her first glimpse of life beyond the ocean, she is enthralled by what she sees. Falling in love with a mortal Prince she leaves her magical underwater world behind, losing her voice and enduring immense pain to make the ultimate sacrifice for love.

From breath-taking underwater scenes to vibrant life on land, rediscover Hans Christian Andersen's original fairytale performed by Northern Ballet's world-class dancers with Celtic-inspired music played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
