Summary

But oh! what a fabulous night he had had,When his world was turned into a zoo!After wandering off from a school field trip, a young boy falls asleep in the Natural History Museum. There he sees his classmates, teachers, and family transformed into a menagerie of animals, from wild hyenas to stately peacocks.John Lithgow's exhilarating word play, inspired by Camille Saint-Saƫns's 1886 composition, provides a narrative arc to the piece for the first time. Lithgow created the text for the New York City Ballet, where theCarnival of the Animalsballet, with his narration, debuted in 2003. Boris Kulikov's witty artistic interpretation of the story adds to the fun.
