In this West African folk tale, 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 must face the consequences. Narration, whimsical costumes and traditional African masks make The Singing Tortoise a great introduction to dance. Nashville Ballet will present a performance of “The Singing Tortoise” on Friday, February 17, at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm). This performance is presented by the Gallatin Arts Council for local families with elementary age children and ballet lovers.
