Carnival of the (Australian) Animals - An SSO Family Concert.
Australia is notorious for its fearsome fauna – any visitor can tell you about our biting, stinging animals! So an Australian like Matthew Hindson is probably best qualified to compose a modern "Carnival of the Animals" that's all about the nasty ones.
Big and hairy, small and scary, and finishing with the most dangerous creatures of all – humans! Then TV personality Richard Morecroft narrates the music that started it all – Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals – with new words by Bradley Trevor Greive (The Blue Day Book). From the long-eared bilby to the koala and the blobfish, Greive finds Aussie animals to match Saint-Saëns' original musical caricatures.
Suitable for ages 3+ and their families.
Arrive early or stay afterwards for our Kids Activity Zone.
