The Little Mermaid

When: Feb. 2-19 2017

How do you choreograph a ballet when your principal character has fins and a flipper—but no feet? Guest choreographer Lynne Taylor-Corbett and costume designer David Heuvel figured that problem out when Carolina Ballet premiered Taylor-Corbett's kid-friendly adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale—no, not the 1989 Disney version—here in 2012. Michael Moricz's snazzy songs and Jeff A.R. Jones's set designs gave the Broadway-tinged work some legs; after a subsequent showing by Ohio's BalletMet, the entire run of Colorado Ballet's March 2017 production has already sold out. The program opens with artistic director Robert Weiss's Petit Ballet Romantique, set to music by Leo Delibes. —Byron Woods
