The Little Mermaid 2023

Our season continues with a spring performance of The Little Mermaid.

Before it was a Disney blockbuster, it was a fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. Since its original publication in 1837, The Little Mermaid has won fans through picture books, musical theater, animation, and dance. On April 1st & 2nd, Pioneer Valley Ballet (PVB) will bring its own extravagant adaptation of this audience favorite to Northampton’s Academy of Music Theatre for three performances.

Set to a musical score by Camille Saint Saens, PVB’s The Little Mermaid tells the story of a young mermaid who is willing to give up her life in the ocean and her identity as a mermaid to gain a human soul and the love of a human prince. A Sea Witch helps her reach the human realm, but on dry land the mermaid faces new dangers and a strict deadline. Will she win the love of her prince before time runs out and she is reduced to sea foam? Join us to find out what happens!

Performances are on Saturday, April 1st 1:00pm & 4:30, and Sunday, April 2nd 1:00pm
