The Adventures of the Cipollino

The Adventures of the Cipollino is the MBSA student showcase choreographed by MBSA and MBII Director, Rolando Yanes, with support from the MBSA Faculty.  Cipollino, or Little Onion, fights the unjust treatment of his fellow vegetable town folk by the fruit royalty, Prince Lemon and the overly proud Lord Tomato. Set in the garden kingdom, the story focuses on good versus evil and the importance of friendship in the face of difficulties.
