Colorado Ballet will close out its 2016-2017 season with the children’s classic The Little Mermaid, with choreography by Tony Award nominated choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett and original music by composer Michael Moricz.  The score includes narration and lyrics with the music to enhance the telling of the story.  Carolina Ballet premiered this version of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story in 2012.  The Little Mermaid is perfect for families and anyone who enjoys a classic love story.  The colorful costumes, vigorous dancing and entertaining musical score will entertain audiences of all ages.  This is the first time that Colorado Ballet has ever presented this classic fairy tale and will demonstrate what it looks like to dance ‘under the sea.’

This production will also open with a special performance of Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1, choreographed by Clark Tippet featuring a vibrant violin ensemble composed by Max Bruch.  Colorado Ballet first performed the Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in 2007 and since that time, the ballet has become an audience favorite.
