A Dancing Musical Journey that Thrills Children and Adults Alike!

Carnival of the Animals returns!

Whitaker Center — Saturday 10/20 and Sunday 10/21 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.

Choreography: Laszlo Berdo
Music: Camille Saint-Saёns with the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra

“…a menagerie worthy of many repeat visits.” – The Patriot-News

“…a fabulous script, impeccable ensemble of musicians, and world-class performers.” – The Patriot-News

On the heels of sold-out 2011 performances, Laszlo Berdo’s rollicking Carnival of the Animals returns for four performances only. Saint-Saens’ buoyant melodies soar with the magnificent Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra and WITF radio personality Cary Burkett’s “witty and rhyming narration.”

Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s whimsical production offers the perfect setting to introduce young children to music and dance. Whisked away to a fantastical world of zoological wonder, young Noah Nathaniel Norris finds nothing ordinary or boring about his day. Carnival of the Animals carries away the adventurous of all ages!
