Carnival of the Animals

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre working with the Western Australia Symphony Orchestra

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre is very excited to be working with the Western Australia Symphony Orchestra (WASO) for its family concert series to present Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals at the Perth Concert Hall.

Lions, elephants, tortoises and more come alive during this audience favourite as WASO turns the Perth Concert Hall into a sumptuous zoo.

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 students with a blend of music, puppets and stop motion animation projected onto a large screen.
