The Carnival of the Animals
26 October, 2019 - 18:00 - 19:00
Family concert. OCIM Educational With fantastic music by Saint-Saëns, different animals dress up as instruments to celebrate their own particular Carnival. A divertimento exercise instigated by a meeting among friends ends up turning into the most popular musical score by the French composer in spite of itself. Maybe this is because, not only are the animals portrayed but they become characters; or perhaps it’s because, in the end, there’s many “animals” amongst us and in our very homes… For the second year, there will be another exciting learning experience held by the orchestra Orquestra de Cambra Illa de Menorca and the Teatre Principal de Maó to draw family and school audiences closer to classical music. This project has a clear educational purpose, combining the wonderful music by Saint-Saëns —The Carnival of the Animals— with a dramatic performance created by actress Gemma Moll.
