As we continue our efforts to enrich our repertoire with a diverse range of ballets and both esteemed and emerging choreographers, we are excited to open our 2024-2025 season with the Company premiere of John Neumeier’s coveted production of The Little Mermaid. This beautifully haunting interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairytale follows the troubled mermaid heroine on a journey between the divergent worlds of land and sea—one utterly complex, the other magnificently serene. With sets and costumes of grand scale displayed in a captivating blend of colors and shadows, complemented by an original score by composer Lera Auerbach, this intricate love story, deeply rooted in Andersen’s 1837 fairytale follows the mysterious mermaid heroine, makes its long-awaited debut in Houston.
