"If only I could make my father understand. I don’t see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be so bad. "

In a kingdom beneath the sea, King Triton’s youngest daughter Ariel yearns to have her questions answered about the human world. When she saves the handsome Prince Eric from drowning, Ariel begins to discover her own voice with the help of her friends – even after the tricky sea witch silences her. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved fairy tales, this classic will be given its own dose of NCT magic. Performed with a live orchestra!
