Camille Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals
About this performance
The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra presents Carnival of the Animals, a must-hear work for all students, to delight and capture the imaginations of both young and old. The humorous depiction of animals in Saint-Saëns’ Zoological Fantasy are brought to life through music and puppetry live on the Hamer Hall stage; this concert will be quite the menagerie!
This MSO performance includes some unexpected visitors – the addition of extra wildlife, commissioned especially for the event.
