Danse Macabre (opus number 40) is a tone poem for orchestra, written in 1874 by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. It is in the key of G minor. It started out in 1872 as an art song for voice and piano with a French text by the poet Henri Cazalis, but in 1874, Saint-Saëns expanded and reworked the piece into a tone poem, replacing the vocal line with a solo violin.
