Verb Ballets will bring a whimsical menagerie of animals to life in The Carnival of the Animals. Verb Ballets' Associate Director, Richard Dickinson (Ohio Ballet) has taken the music of Camille Saint-Saens to tell the story through movements inspired by the animals. The animals learn to appreciate each other's differences as the beautiful Swan teaches a lesson in friendship followed by a grand carnival ending the ballet. Plus, enjoy an interactive pre-show for children with Verb Ballets!
