“The Little Mermaid” by Lera Auerbach in the Danish Press

Erik Aschengreen wrote the following about the world premiere in Copenhagen of the ballet “The Little Mermaid” by John Neumeier (choreography) and Lera Auerbach (music) on 15 April 2005 in the Berlingske Tidende (17 April 2005):

“John Neumeier performs magic with us with very simple scenic means, taking us from the bottom of the sea up to air and light. In the course of his moods, ranging from cheerfulness to drama and silent pain, he has received a congenial accompaniment in Lera Auerbach’s score in purely musical terms. It fills and rolls along with his steps without calling undue attention to itself.”
