The Little Mermaid

19.1.2019 – 12.2.2019

The return of the popular ballet spectacle

The Little Mermaid whisks the audience into a different world. Kenneth Greve’s hit production is both an enthralling spectacle and a touching story about the pursuit of dreams and the power of love. It’s no wonder this ballet has only been performed to full houses.

Thaïs
