Carnival of the Animals

Warm and fuzzy. Cute and cuddly. Slippery and Slimy.


Animals come in all different shapes, sizes and protective coatings. Whether you’re into furs, feathers, scales or leather, you’ll find an animal that takes your fancy in Camille Saint-Saëns’ immortal classic, Carnival of the Animals.

As an added bonus, newly written poems by acclaimed Tasmanian writer Bradley Trevor Greive introduce each of the musical numbers, bringing a fresh and uniquely Australian perspective to an old favourite. What’s more, big screen projections bring the animal kingdom vividly to life.

What are you waiting for? Join the carnival!
