Carnival of the Animals

Carnival of the Animals

VERB Ballets will present a ballet that reveals the plight of the cuckoo bird, who is bullied because he does not act like the other animals. A beautiful swan, the intervener, befriends the cuckoo and brings all the animals together to teach them how to act (move), teaching the animals tolerance and acceptance. The audience will have an opportunity to ask dancers what it is like to be a professional and how they developed their animal characters.
