The Singing Tortoise
February 16, 2013 at TPAC's Polk Theater
Music by Todd London
Choreography by Paul Vasterling
Based on a West African folk tale, The Singing Tortoise is a fun-for-all-ages children’s ballet.
In this parable, a hunter named Ama meets a magical singing tortoise in the forest.
He promises not to tell anyone about the tortoise’s talent, but breaks his word and suffers the consequences.
Narration, whimsical costumes and a short performance time make The Singing Tortoise a great way to introduce dance to children of all ages.
Learn to dance like the Ama, the tortoise and all of their animal friends during an interactive portion immediately following the performance!
Tickets for this family-friendly ballet are $23 for adults and $16 for children 12 years old and younger.
The Singing Tortoise will be held at TPAC's Polk Theater for one performance:
Saturday, February 16 at 2 p.m.
Sign Languge Interpretation
An American Sign Language interpreter from Bridges will be available at the performance to translate the narration for individuals with hearing impairments.
