Family performance (6+), a free adaptation of 'The Little Mermaid'.
'Meermeisje' is a free adaptation of the story of Hans Christiaan Andersen: the Little Mermaid by Holland Opera, Ragazze Quartet and Opera Zuid. Oene van Geel wrote the music. The show tells the story of a young mermaid who gives up her family, her water world and her voice out of love for a boy of the country and the urge to dance. In this Faust-like story, the Meergirl sells her voice to the Sea Witch instead of her soul, in exchange for a pair of beautifully dancing legs.
