BBC Proms 2021: The Carnival of the Animals


Camille Saint-Saëns, who died 100 years ago, is celebrated in a special family Prom which explores the sounds and rhythms of the Manchester Caribbean Carnival with Revel, a brand new music by Daniel Kidane and narration by Lemn Sissay, before delving into the world of imagination with Saint-Saëns’s muchloved suite The Carnival of the Animals. The seven talented Kanneh-Mason siblings and musical friends are joined by former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo for The Carnival of the Animals. This musical menagerie, packed with braying donkeys, energetic kangaroos, a serene swan and an aquarium of glinting fish, gets a fresh update. PROGRAM: Kidane: Revel, Saint‐Saëns: The Carnival of the Animals
