Carnival of the Animals

Sat Dec 21, 2019
Various times
6+
$15 - $30 for adults, $9 - $18 for children

Lake Simons’s imaginative Carnival of the Animals is a playful production that brings to life Saint-Saëns’s musical “salute to feathers, fur, and fins."

A modern twist on Victorian toy theater, this imaginative staging combines music, scenic elements, puppetry, and movement, plus the clever verses of Ogden Nash. Watch as everyday objects take on new lives as lions, elephants, and birds, through the incredible work of puppeteers. Hear top-notch musical performances by some of the city’s best players.

Performances at 1pm & 4pm
Music by Camille Saint-Saëns, with poetry by Ogden Nash
