Music Hall CanCan

The Galop from Jacques Offenbach's "Orpheus in the Underworld" is the tune most associated with the Can-Can. We are dancing this today as we learn about french composer, Camille Saint-Saens who wrote "The Carnival of the Animals." He stole the tune from his fellow composer and used it for the turtle as a joke!
