Les Siècles

The Carnival of the Animals is a universal musical fable full of humour. Saint-Saëns composed his work for the Paris Carnival, to celebrate Mardi Gras. In this musical fresco, the lion rubs shoulders with hens and roosters, the tortoise with the elephant, and the majestic swan meets pianists. "This mammal, concertivore and digitigrade ... Lovers of game, don't shoot the piano player!" Les Siècles propose a new interpretation of this masterpiece with the assistance of Grégoire Pont, a wonderful illustrator who will draw live with the music, to the delight of children and adults alike!
