One of my biggest dreams came true on Thursday August 29th, 2019, when Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID opened in Helsinki, Finland - directed by me!
This has been a long dream for me - ever since 2012 after directing Disney’s ALADDIN, I started the creative process in my mind, as well as exploring possibilities to bring this fantastic show to a theatre in Scandinavia. It was not until couple of days later when I realised I actually achieved one of my wildest dreams. I am grateful, honoured and so happy.
Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID was praised by the audience, and all the reviews have been astonishing. Every major newspaper in Finland has pointed out, that nothing like this has been seen in Finland on stage. Ever. I am so blown away by the response, and I couldn’t be happier to learn that years of creative work was not for nothing.
Tickets have been selling really well, more than 60% of the tickets were sold before we opened. You can book tickets here:
Here is the official trailer of the show:
I would really want every single people to see this spectacular fairytale. Please, let me know if you get to see this show, and let me know what you think
