Inspired by the original fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen



Immerse yourself in a mystical underwater world.

When a young mermaid is finally allowed her first glimpse of life beyond the ocean, she is enthralled by what she sees. After falling desperately in love with a man, she will do anything she can to live a human life.

Northern Ballet’s beautiful new ballet will reimagine the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale and take you on a journey beneath the waves.
