Scene: A zoo after closing
After the zoo closes to the public, the animals begin gathering one by one or in groups in anticipation of a soirée. The kingly lion is the last to arrive, and he directs that the festivities are to begin. The ballet concludes with a grand waltz of all the animals.
The work is dedicated to Boleyn Willis-Zeger, director of the Legacy Studios for the Performing Arts.
