Circa: Carnival of the Animals

  • The Performing Center, Purchase College 735 Anderson Hill Road Purchase, NY, 10577 United States (map)

The circus comes to town with whimsical tales of creatures of land and sea, who tumble, fly, leap, and spin their way through the many wondrous worlds of the animal kingdom.

Our zebras juggle and flip…
Our kangaroos skip and somersault…
We’ve elephants with street-cred and rhythm…
And even our dinosaur bones shake, clatter and roll to the music.

Carnival of the Animals whisks you away on a thrilling circus escapade inspired by Camille Saint-Saëns’ delightful salute to feathers, fur, and fins. Circa’s acrobats bring this classical music suite to life for a whole new generation of circus, music, and animal lovers.
