Fratello Marionettes present 'Carnival of the Animals'

'Carnival of the Animals' was written by the French composer Saint-Saens in 1886, but was not performed publicly until after his death in 1921. Here we have three classic storybook fairy tales: the 'Three Little Pigs', the 'Tortoise and the Hare', and the 'Ugly Duckling'. Utilizing a unique performance style, the puppet and puppeteer are seen in full view of the audience on a raised stage.
