Meet The Little Mermaid on Saturday January 19: Join the lecture before the evening show / Visit the launching of the new DVD (in collaboration with the Czech Television) / Come to the autograph signing and meet our dancers
The magical fairy tale world of Hans Christian Andersen is back at last. At the end of January and at the beginning of February there will be six performances of The Little Mermaid – three of them in the afternoon. On Saturday January 19 we will stage the show for the first time this season and you can look forward to interesting accompanying programme.
A special lecture before the show – The Little Mermaid
“This story is not only about the little mermaid who falls in love with the human prince. It is also about the search for our own soul. Would you like to know more about the team of professionals who created this exceptional ballet? What were their goals and motivations? Why is the role of the Witch important, or the Grandmother? What would you be willing to sacrifice for the love of your life?”
A special guest of the lecture: Jan Kodet, the choreographer.
The lecture starts at the Estates Theatre at 1.30 pm, half an hour before the afternoon show. It takes place at Mozartův salonek in the foyer of the first balcony.
Launching of the DVD of The Little Mermaid
The Czech National Ballet in collaboration with the Czech Television and Les Films Figures Libres issued the DVD containing The Little Mermaid ballet at the end of the year 2018. It will be presented to the public officially on Saturday January 19. The choreographer Jan Kodet as well as other members of the creative team will be present. And the Little Mermaid herself will also appear…
The launching will take place on the stage of the Estates Theatre before the evening performance at 6 pm.
An autograph signing of the The Little Mermaid DVD
On Saturday January 19 after the evening show the autograph signing of The Little Mermaid DVD will take place. You can purchase the product on the spot. It is a great opportunity to get a special present for yourself or buy an original gift for your family. The Little Mermaid herself (Magdaléna Matějková, the CNB soloist) will come and sign the DVD. Enjoy!
