Family Concert: The Story of Babar

July 3, 2021 | 11:00 am America/Denver
The Festival welcomes back vaudeville-inspired musical storytellers Really Inventive Stuff. This imaginative group uses comedy, props, and interaction to refresh beloved musical classics and enchant audiences of all ages. The Story of Babar tells the tale of one little elephant's epic rise from rags to riches, featuring music by Poulenc and a playful re-imagining by Really Inventive Stuff. This family-delighting program begins with the quirky Toy Symphony, which includes noisemakers, kazoos, and other toy instruments as part of the orchestra. This performance will be delivered both in person and virtually. Each in-person ticket purchase also grants access to the virtual performance. The livestream for this event is free of charge, but registration is required. If you would prefer to attend the virtual concert only, please register here
