Camille Saint-Saëns (1835–1921)

Musical suite

Dancing elephants, stubborn donkeys and shimmering swarms of fish - Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals is one of his best known works. Don't miss seeing lots of curious animals scampering about in the Bockenheimer Depot, directed by Katharina Kastening, with the actor Christoph Pütthoff, using texts adapated by Loriot, one of the funniest German one-offs ever, accompanied by members of our orchestra and two pianists. Here's a detailed programme!

This has been filmed in advance and can be viewed on this website, YouTube & Facebook from 7.30pm on April 9 until April 30.
