Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals
About this performance
The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra presents Carnival of the Animals, a work 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, composed by MSO Young Composer in Residence, Alex Turley.
