the Little Elephant

Music by Francis Poulenc
Story by Jean de Brunhoff
Design & direction by Sara Valentine & Michael Boudewyns

Pack your trunks!  You're invited to Babar's coronation! Jean de Brunhoff's popular children's story of one little elephant's epic rise from rags to riches is eloquently set to music by Francis Poulenc, and expressively re-imagined by Really Inventive Stuff with all the enthusiasm and pomp worthy of a royal gathering.  Long live King Babar!
