Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals with Zeb Soanes

Featuring Francis Poulenc's Les Animaux modèles



Join us for a Friday Night ROSL ARTS Season Spectacular!

The first half begins with the production debut of pianist Joseph Havlat’s (2019 ROSL Annual Music Competition Solo Keyboard Section Final Winner) cross-collaboration performance of Francis Poulenc’s Les Animaux modèles, with BBC Radio 4 announcer, newsreader and voice of The Shipping Forecast, Zeb Soanes as narrator and stage artworks by six contemporary artists: Matilda Barretta, Laura Bygrave, Bill Daggs, Yun Kim, Miro King and Kalman Pool.

For this special concert in the second half, after intermission refreshments, our audience will be treated to Camille Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals, which was last performed at ROSL during the 2006 opening of Princess Alexandra Hall. To introduce each animal, Zeb Soanes as narrator will read Roger McGough's entertaining poems, specially written to accompany the music. A performance not to be missed consisting of two pianos, a string quintet, flute, clarinet and xylophone.

Rarely does an opportunity to observe the growth of a young artist and performer come along with this much ambition. Follow the journey of this project with us in the Princess Alexandra Hall this September.
