CCDE Presents: Carnival of the Animals & Firebird

Date: May 07, 2023
Time: 3:00 PM

Children’s Center for Dance Education presents two exciting and engaging ballets: Carnival of the Animals and The Firebird!

Opening the evening is Carnival of the Animals, a ballet set to a whimsical score by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns.

“The Carnival of the Animals is in town

A place where Mother Nature’s dance is found.

Sit tight as the wild show their talent and grace.

If you’ve come to be entertained, this is the place!”

Featuring original poetry by Todd Schimmel and narrated by Mike White, this ballet is sure to be a treat for all ages!

Closing the evening is The Firebird, an exotic tale based on European folklore and set to a rousing score composed by Igor Stravinski, with our version taking place in the Amazonian rainforests. Watch the story unfold as Prince Galvarino traverses the rainforest and encounters a magical Alicanto (the Firebird), a Princess and her maidens, and the various creatures of the jungle controlled by the evil Boraro.

Tickets are available on the CCDE website or can be purchased for $20 at the door.
