Carnival of the Animals will be at in Nashville, TN

A mighty lion learns the value of diversity in this engaging children’s ballet.

The king of the jungle cannot understand why everyone isn’t exactly like him, but a wise and patient bird introduces the lion to a host of jungle creatures -- including an elephant, swan and fish -- to teach him that we are all unique, and it’s exactly those differences that make life interesting.

Families are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy children’s activities, including mask-making and origami. Family activities begin 1 hour prior to each performance. All children who attend a performance dressed as their favorite animal will receive a Nashville Ballet keepsake.
