Mexican children's story featured in free Nashville Ballet performance June 2

The Tennessean reports in this article that the Nashville Ballet will perform the tale of the Borreguita and the Coyote in a free children's program tomorrow night, Friday, June 2.

"When a gullible, yet hungry, coyote picks up on the trail of Borreguita (which means 'little lamb' in Spanish), the fleece-covered trickster must outsmart him before she becomes dinner. Along the way, the mountains and the moon, and other inanimate objects dance to life, set to the tune of Spanish-style classical guitar."

"'Both entertaining and educational, study guides and background information about the story will be available beforehand, so that young attendees will have the chance to familiarize themselves with the performance.'"

The performance will be held at 7pm at the Red Caboose Amphitheater, at Colice Jeanne Road and Highway 70. For more information contact Metro Parks at 862-8424 or the Nashville Ballet at their web site.
