Nashville Ballet presents Carnival of the Animals
The Lion, King of the Beasts, cannot understand why everyone isn’t exactly like him. If he’s the King he must be the best so of course all the other animals should change. A wise and patient Bird teaches the arrogant Lion to appreciate the beauty in each animal’s unique qualities. Follow the Lion as he journeys through this wild jungle full of whimsical characters. It’s a joyous celebration when the Lion learns that we are basically all the same on the inside, but it’s our differences that make life interesting. Running time: 30 minutes
