A gripping tableau of shadows and colors, Neumeier’s beautifully haunting interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1837 fairytale follows the tormented 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 the grandest scale and an original score by composer Lera Auerbach, this fantastical love story, based on Andersen’s original and decidedly complex themes, makes its long-awaited Chicago debut.

Choreographed by; Johh Neumeier. Composed by Lera Auerbach
