      EVENT DETAILS
      Northwest Ballet Presents The Little Mermaid

      Artistic Director John Bishop has done his usual masterful job choreographing The Little Mermaid, set to music by Ottorino Respighi and Benjamin Britten.

      Very briefly, the title character saves the life of a captain following a shipwreck. The captain doesn’t remember her in his delirium and believes a human girl saved him. The two humans fall in love and are engaged to be married. Meanwhile, the mermaid asks a sea witch to transform her into a human so that she can pursue her lost love on land. The transformation comes at the expense of the mermaid’s voice, so she can’t explain to her captain what actually happened. Her sisters suggest she kill him, but her love is such that she sacrifices her own life instead. Powerful stuff, and Bishop’s ballet tells the story with heartbreaking sympathy.

      The 2020 production will feature dramatic choreography, elaborate costuming, and added special effects to make this ballet even more magical than the first.

      Cost: $10+
