Event Description

"The King Elephant and the Mice"


The largest animal in the forest, the mighty King Elephant, leads his elephant family to the lake to drink. As the herd of elephants charge towards the water, the forest mice scurry away. But when the elephants wade into the lake, they get stuck in the mud and are soon captured by hunters! Who will come to their rescue? Originally from a collection of Indian fables passed down through centuries, this story teaches us that we will find friends—and courage—in unexpected places. Featuring Natya Associate Artistic Director Krithika Rajagopalan as the Storyteller.

Presented in collaboration with The Chicago Symphony Orchestra
