Señoritas y Toros
May 11 - 12 and 18 - 19, 2013 at The Martin Center for Nashville Ballet
Ferdinand the Bull Music by Mario daSilva
Ferdinand the Bull Choreography by Paul Vasterling
Paquita Choreography by Marius Petipa
Paquita Music by Ludwig Minkus
Two ballets with Spanish flair -- Paquita and Ferdinand the Bull -- introduce young children to the world of movement and music.
In the excerpt of Paquita, children see the art of classical ballet with tutus, pointe shoes and Spanish sass.
With bright, colorful costumes inspired by cubist Pablo Picasso, Ferdinand the Bull tells the story of a peaceful bull who only wants to smell the flowers in the meadow, making him unfit for the bullfighting rings in Spain.
Children and families can learn to dance like Ferdinand and his friends during an interactive portion immediately following the performance.
Señoritas y Toros will be held at The Martin Center for Nashville Ballet for four performances:
Saturday, May 11 at 2 p.m.
Sunday, May 12 at 2 p.m.
Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m.
Sunday, May 19 at 2 p.m.
