This spectacular landmark production boasts magnificent sets (even a live shipwreck!) and ornate costumes (including a cast of delightful undersea creatures) which are a feast for the eyes. A sweeping sound collage of great composers, from Maurice Raveland, Claude Debussy, to Benjamin Britten and Raif Vaughn Williams furthers the drama and emotion as the Little Mermaid goes on her adventures. Innovative aerial technology has been created to generate an under-the-sea-environment.
Bridges Auditorium is a premier college venue for the best in music, theatre, and performing arts. Located on the Pomona College campus in beautiful Claremont, California, the 2,500-seat theatre, built in 1931, is a historic venue modeled after European concert houses of that time.

There will be a meeting before the opera so students can learn about the opera and its historical background, also, to understand the rules for attending the opera. Date/time TBA.
Lost in the forest, a hunter encounters an ethereal beauty with a mysterious past (and the lushest locks in opera—sorry, Samson!). Returning home as his new bride, she grows increasingly close to his handsome younger half-brother. Conducted by James Conlon (who “never fails“ according to Variety), Debussy’s sensual, exquisitely nuanced score captures an enigmatic dream world where forbidden love blossoms.
Kate Lindsey and Yunpeng Wang star as the secret lovers, with Willard White as King Arkel.
