December 2015

Saturday, December 19 at 3pm and 7pm: Miller Theatre at Columbia University
Carnival of the Animals

Music by Camille Saint-Saëns, with poetry by Ogden Nash

Miller inaugurates a new holiday tradition, a playful production that brings to life Saint-Saëns’ musical “salute to feathers, fur, and fins”—The Carnival of the Animals. A modern twist on Victorian toy theater, this imaginative staging combines music, scenic elements, puppetry, and movement, plus the clever verses of Ogden Nash. Just about an hour in length, this family-friendly presentation is the perfect holiday treat to delight imaginative audiences of all ages.

Tickets: $15 – $40 for adults, $9 – $24 for children. Recommended for ages 6 and up. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Each person, regardless of age, must have a ticket to be admitted.
