The Carnival of the Animals

A dastardly microorganism prevented us from gathering together in Verbier to offer our VF Kids programme in summer 2020.  So, until we meet again, VF Kids Zoo to the rescue.


the carnival of the animals

In summer 2019, VF Kids took part in a week of creative ‘Storytellers’ workshops focused on Camille Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. Illustrations, masks, musical discovery were on the menu for our ‘petits festivaliers’.  To conclude the week, the children were invited to a live performance of the this classic work, performed by members of the Verbier Festival Academy and Chamber Orchestra, set to an film featuring their own drawings, which was animated by artist Marc Philippin. We invite you to dive into a world of imagination through the eyes of VF Kids. Thanks to their creativity, the animals and funny critters of the Carnival have never been so fantastic.
