Once Upon A Symphony: The Ugly Duckling
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
220 S. Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60604
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra tells the tale of a young swan who is cast out of the pond because the other animals believe such an "ugly duckling" doesn't belong with them. In this adaptation of the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the cygnet goes on an amazing journey of self-discovery, from the pond to the farm and through a snowy winter. After seeing his reflection in the water, he comes to understand his true self: he is not an “ugly duckling” but a beautiful swan. Recommended for ages 3-5.
