We're transforming Government House ballroom into a fairytale world for The Little Mermaid, with the arches, balconies and stage becoming underwater caves, waterfalls and a palace.

Freeze Frame Opera has taken Dvořák’s Rusalka, a beautiful version of The Little Mermaid story, and turned it into a magical production for children. Instead of following the traditional love story, this Little Mermaid is a coming-of-age tale about balancing adventure and responsibility as children grow up and leave home.

In a perfect introduction to live music and theatre for young audiences, there’ll be plenty of laughter, interaction and suspense – and of course the sublime music of Dvořák’s lyrical opera. Stay a while longer to enjoy pedal cars, face painting and refreshments, followed by some fun games in the stunning gardens of Government House, all included in your ticket price.
