Presented by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra

The magic of a live symphony orchestra in a one-hour concert for families.

Let your imagination run wild with Saint-Saëns' delightful classic that introduces the instruments of the orchestra.

Featuring the celebrated puppetry of Spare Parts Puppet Theatre and poetry by Nick Enright this performance will delight children and families with a blend of music, puppets and stop-motion animation.

Lions, elephants, tortoises, roosters, kangaroos and more come alive during this audience favourite as the West Australian Symphony Orchestra turns Perth Concert Hall into a sumptuous zoo for this detailed tour of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals.

NOTE: Suitable for ages 5-12. All live action is projected onto a big screen above the stage.
