Maria and the Mouse Deer is the inaugural work in Ballet Austin’s new series, Fables of the World. The production is a whimsical adaptation of the Philippine folk tales of Maria ‘fairy of the mountain’ and the clever Mouse Deer.

Set to traditional Philippine folk music, the colorful short story ballet celebrates the different species of Southeast Asia and the beauty of caring for the earth and all its creatures.

Follow gentle and strong Maria, the nimble Mouse Deer, the quirky little Tarsier, vibrant birds, and other animal friends as they protect each other and their environment.

Fables of the World invites youth and families to explore and connect to a myriad of cultures through their tales and fables. With the goal of an imaginative production for youth and families created every two years, the series is a long-term effort to program new works for Ballet Austin TWO that share stories from various cultures, particularly featuring some less-represented, non-Eurocentric perspectives.
