Whether ducks dressed in self-made lion furs, mice in diving suits or a pug in a frilled shirt and velvet trousers – at the “Carnival of the Animals“ there is a lot going on! The story, musically told by Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns with great imagination, is also an acoustic celebration – each animal is represented by a different instrument. To the beat of the music, Joachim Torbahn translates with brush and colour the animals’ attempt at a fancy appearance.
