World Premiere by Gianni Di Marco

Music by Camille Saint-Saens and Fraser Campbell

Celebrate what makes you unique!

Hear the music of Camille Saint-Saens and follow the story of Alfie, a young boy who struggles being social. More comfortable with his stuffed animals than with people, Alfie plays with his toys alone each night to escape the world. One night, after he’s gone to sleep, watch as his animals come to life to help Alfie on a journey to self-acceptance.

In this world premiere by Gianni Di Marco, United Dance is thrilled to present a narrated performance for all ages. Carnival of the Animals will be presented alongside Di Marco’s Gatherings
, returning to United Dance audiences after critical acclaim in 2023 and the world premiere of Sundaey.

Performance length: about 1h15
