Carnival of the Animals: Listen

Au spectacle chez soi : Le carnaval des animaux (France 5)

Every night, a father tells his son a bedtime story. Of course, the child always chooses the same book, a somewhat serious book with scores, orchestra photos and Epinal images: it is about Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. Thanks to the gentle complicity of father and son, this somewhat austere book is transformed, comes to life, makes music… The illustrations come to life, the orchestra emerges from the pages, the animals escape from the book… program of this fabulous Carnival of the Animals: animation, live action, music and fiction. Featuring: Smaïn and his own son!
