Much beloved and classic fairytale, The Little Mermaid, presented and performed by the South Australian Children’s Ballet Company (SACBC), brings the original Hans Christian Anderson fable to life in an enchanting narrated ballet for audiences both young and… not so young!
The Little Mermaid Ballet
The magical performance tells the age-old story of rebellious mermaid, Ariel, and her intrigue with life on the land, falling in love with a human Prince on one of her visits to the surface of the ocean. Narrated by “the spirit of the sea” this is a beautiful ballet that is truly accessible to even the youngest theatre goers.
Choreographed by internationally renowned Paul Boyd, no detail is overlooked and no effort spared in creating the perfect stage settings, costumes, lighting and sense of theatre for the performances. This is a highly polished ballet, with carefully blended selection of music and an array of colourful costumes that will have children captivated by the underwater world before them from the first curtain.
South Australian Children’s Ballet Company
The company has 25 dancers from ages 9 – 20 years old who are selected by audition. SACBC members have a rigorous training and rehearsal programme leading up to the performances with twice weekly rehearsals being dedicated to the Fringe season.
Support local talent this Fringe season, be entertained, and escape to an enchanting underwater world that brings a classic story to life before your eyes with the beauty and precision of dance.
