About This Performance

Let music inspire your imagination! The Carnival of the Animals is one of the most famous pieces by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Each of the movements in this spectacular orchestral work depicts a different animal, from the royal lion to the graceful swan. Joining conductor Lawrence Loh and Fiddlesticks onstage is cartoon artist Joe Wos from the Toonseum, who will illustrate the animals as the PSO performs. Let your imagination run wild in this musical journey through the animal kingdom.
