Carnav'jazz des animaux - Choeur seul
King Lion, who fell in ecstasy as a child listening to the jazz bursts he heard when he passed Preservation Hall in New Orleans, has only had one dream since then: to open his own jazz club on the mythical 52nd Street in Manhattan. Fate unexpectedly provides him with the necessary funds and he sets out in search of a jazz band that he dreams of being a big band. He sends various animals of his acquaintance to set up his project (even if Reggaéléphant, the big boss of the milieu, imposes Siréna, his protégée, as a singer). King Lion will also have to beware of a few pitfalls sown by jealous rivals, but it ends with the inauguration of the Carnav'Jazz Club of the Animals, all told by a first-person narrator (the pianist, the band leader) and punctuated by numerous dialogues.
A musical tale on the work of Camille Saint-Saëns, "Le carnaval des animaux": the arrangements by Pierre-Gérard VERNY, for choir and jazz trio or choir and piano, are in various jazz styles and set in a thrilling story, written by Thierry PAUPE, involving the various animals.
The structure of the show also makes it possible to detach certain numbers.
The lyrics of the songs were written by Pierre-Gérard VERNY, Fanja RAHAJASON, Olivier HOUSER, Laure JAUBERT.
