An Enchanting Undersea Adventure

Critics describe this ballet as “…visually stunning…an underwater Lion King,” where puppetry and dancing combine to create a magical ocean world.” Hans Christian Andersen’s story of young love from two different worlds comes to life in Inland Pacific Ballet’s The Little Mermaid with a cast of delightful sea creatures, imaginative puppetry, magnificent sets, elaborate costumes, and innovative aerial technology. Enjoy a sweeping sound collage of music by Ravel, Debussy, Britten, Dvořák and Vaughan Williams, and a surprise ending!
