Carnival of the Animals

Enjoy a menagerie of musical storytelling and interactive art-making with the Curtis Institute of Music and Enchantment Theatre Company. Families are invited to explore Saint-Saëns’s suite, The Carnival of the Animals, as two Curtis pianists provide musical portraits of lions, kangaroos, elephants, and other favorite creatures. Community Artist Fellows from Curtis and actors from Philadelphia’s celebrated Enchantment Theatre Company lead the audience in drawing, singing, dancing, and more. Narrated in fanciful detail, the program promises to delight children and adults alike. 

Light refreshments will be served after each performance.
