Carnival of the Animals Music by Camille Saint-Saëns Words by Nick Enright Thrilling music performed live on two pianos! If you could be an animal, which one would you be?

Our unique version of Carnival of the Animals is set on one beautiful day in Perth as Saint-Saëns’ marvellous music bursts out of the theatre, transporting us from Fremantle to the Hills, the Swan River to the city. The words of beloved Australian playwright Nick Enright, a cast of hilarious puppets, time-lapse footage and two extraordinary pianists live on stage will bring this carnival to life.
