'Babar the Little Elephant' Comes Alive on the Giltz Stage
The SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Music will host a production of “Babar and the Carnival of Animals” Wednesday, Feb. 14 at 6 p.m. in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall.
Part of the Karen Becker and Friends series of concerts, “Barbar” pairs composer Saint-Saens “Carnival of the Animals” with Francis Poulenc’s classic tale “Babar the Little Elephant.” Becker is joined Dr. Jun Matsuo, adjunct lecturer in music, on piano, Karen Hildebrand, adjunct lecturer in theater, as narrator, and Timothy Morningstar, adjunct lecturer in music, as director.
According to Morningstar, the 20-minute musical uses “pantomime, puppets and the inventive music of Francis Poulenc to tell the story of Babar and his exciting adventures in the forest and the city.”
Tickets are $3. For information, contact Dwayne Butchino, performing arts coordinator, Department of Music, at 518-564-2243 or email [email protected].
