Rochester City Ballet will present “The Ugly Duckling” Saturday and Sunday, February 6 and 7, at the Nazareth College Arts Center.

Performers Shannon Rodriquez, who plays the Hen, and Jessica Tretter, who plays the Ugly Duckling, discussed the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale Tuesday on News 8 at Noon.  Through their movements on the stage, the ballet dancers bring the characters to life while conveying Andersen’s message about intolerance and misunderstanding.

Performances will be held Saturday at 11:00 a.m. (sensory friendly) and 2:00 p.m., as well as Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
