Ballet at The Curve

Northern Ballet is set to bring The Little Mermaid to Leicester on its world tour this month

Northern Ballet is bringing Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale to Leicester on the final leg of its world première tour of The Little Mermaid. Telling the story of a young mermaid who is willing to give up everything she knows in the search for love, the Leeds-based company returns to Leicester Curve with performances of this new ballet from 1-5 May 2018.

The Little Mermaid is choreographed and directed by Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director David Nixon OBE, whose most recent creations for the Company include hits Cinderella, The Great Gatsby and Beauty & the Beast.

This new production will immerse audiences in the mystical underwater world of Andersen’s famous fable with designs by Kimie Nakano (sets), Tim Mitchell (lighting) and David Nixon OBE (costumes). The production also features an original score by Sally Beamish.
