Babar and the carnival of the animals

A musical adventure with the Belgian National Orchestra and Babar

Let yourself be swept away by our elephant Babar and the beautiful music of Camille Saint-Saëns' Carnaval des Animaux and Poulenc's Histoire de Babar le petit éléphant. The Belgian National Orchestra and illustrator Camille Scherrer transform the concert hall into a large musical zoo. Babar takes us on a musical adventure and along the way we meet a colorful collection of special animals.
