Swan Lake Storytime
Wednesday, April 30 at 10:30 a.m.
Nashville Public Library
Thompson Lane Branch
FREE and open to the public

In this quintessential ballet, set to music composed by the great Tchaikovsky, a prince falls in love with a swan maiden whom he discovers is more woman than swan. Only he can break the spell cast by the evil sorcerer to turn the swan maiden into her true form of a woman. This interactive story time introduces children to the ballet language of pantomime, dance styles from countries around the world and how various styles of the music can influence the story
