Event By: Leo Rich Theater

Time: Two performances - 2:00 PM and 3:30 PM


Everybody's very favorite little elephant comes to life when José Luis Gomez conducts The Story of Babar the Elephant. In Francis Poulenc's playful music, various instruments are used to illustrate Babar and the other characters in the story, much like Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. Babar first appeared in French author Jean de Brunhoff’s children’s book Histoire de Babar in 1931.  Performance at Leo Rich Theatre
