The Czech National Ballet on DVD! The Little Mermaid on DVD as part of the Czech Television Ballet series.
She would rather die than kill her beloved. With the first morning sunrays she enters the sea, ready to diffuse into sea foam… The tragic fate of the Little Mermaid whose love for the earthly prince was stronger than her own life still inspires us and touches our hearts deeply. The Czech National Ballet stages the story of Hans Christian Andersen at the Estates Theatre and this version of the famous fairy tale is now on DVD.
The Czech National Ballet in collaboration with the Czech Television and Les Films Figures Libres publish the Little Mermaid on DVD.
“We captured live performance. It was crucial to place all the cameras carefully but the most important task was the final editing.” Jan Kodet
This version of the beautiful romantic story is choreographed by Jan Kodet and accompanied by the music of Zbyněk Matějů. Stage direction: SKUTR (Lukáš Trpišovský and Martin Kukučka), sets: Jakub Kopecký, costumes: Alexandra Grusková.
Czech artists created a dark blue and green world of the deep underwater realm that merges organically with the earthly kingdom of humans. Fascinating surreal scene arises thanks to minimalist set and colorful costumes – a dream coming alive!
