"The Little Mermaid" is a world-famous and very-very sad story about true love. Based on this Andersen's tale, St. Petersburg composer Ilya Partas wrote an opera for children and adults. This is the theatrical debut of the young author, as well as the debut of the director Maria Papileva and the artist Daria Zditovetskaya.
