The Little Mermaid Blu-ray (San Francisco Ballet)

In The Little Mermaid,Hamburg Ballet Director and Chief Chorographer John Neumeier blends dance, dramatic storytelling and spectacle into a stunning interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen's fable. With choreography, sets and costumes all by Neumeier, this ballet - as much theatre as it is dance - reveals the depths of the choreograper's imagination. Neumeier elevates a fantasy into a sophisticated portrayal of psychological transformation and the resilience of the spirit, human or otherwise.
