"Babar, der kleine Elefant" at Wiener Konzerhaus (Austria)

On 16 and 17 October 2021 TRAFFIK THEATER will bring its children’s show Babar, der kleine Elefant back to the Wiener Konzerhaus with the support of Kultur|lx.

More than 80 years after the first edition of this book, BABAR inspires young and old with its poetry and the power of the unique music composed by Francis Poulenc between 1940 and 1945. Using Chinese shadow theatre, Dan Tanson tells the famous Story of Babar, the little elephant, and invites fans of slightly older tales on a sonic journey full of poetry and suspense.
