Ferdinand the Bull
Belmont University's Massey Performing Arts Center
Saturday, September 20 at 2 p.m.

Join Nashville Ballet’s Outreach & Education Department and the Belmont University School of Music as we present a FREE performance of the children's ballet, Ferdinand the Bull. Through original choreography, music and 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, as told by Munro Leaf in his classic children’s book.
