The story of Babar the elephant

Musical tale by Francis Poulenc

MUSICAL TALE

At his four-year old niece invitation, Poulenc set L’Histoire de Babar to music in 1946, fifteen years after the famous elephant with a green suit was written by Jean de Brunhoff. Between Paris and Célesteville, his adventures are all the more charming.
