17 February 2013 1:30 PM or 4:00 PM
A musical menagerie awaits audiences of all ages with this first installment of a new Family Day tradition. We’ve even found a talking rabbit to lead our musical circus. Denise Clarke, Associate Artist of One Yellow Rabbit, narrates Jean de Brunhoff’s Story of Babar set to the music of Francis Poulenc and guides us through Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals with poems by Ogden Nash. Popular Honens Laureate Hong Xu brings elephants, lions and kangaroos to life with his playful interpretations at the piano.
