Description

The opening ballet, “USO Radio Show 1942”, was choreographed by Francis Patrelle for Ballet Excel Ohio in 1997.  The ballet opens on a live 1942 USO radio show being produced in Akron, Ohio.  The audience shares in the patriotic fervor such a show created through its use of song, music and dance numbers.Based on the children’s classic, Ballet Excel Ohio’s feature ballet of “The Little Mermaid” is a modified version of the Hans Christian Andersen original. The beautiful music used for this ballet is by French composer, Andre Messager (1853-1929).  First performed by BXO in 2012, talented choreographer, Tom Gold brings back a crowd favorite to the Akron Civic Theatre. A universally heartwarming story of youthful adventure, light romance and a quest for togetherness, the two main characters brave obstacles despite coming from very different worlds of land and sea.
