Come children (and children at heart!) for a concert that mixes the magic of stories, images, and music, including Return to the Land of the Elephants by composer Raphael Mostel—the U.S. premiere of the orchestral version of one of his two multimedia musical voyages based on The Travels of Babar by Jean de Brunhoff.

Most enjoyed by age 5 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.

Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families, including those with children with autism or other sensory sensitivities. If you order these performances and do not require these Accessibility accommodations, your family is still very much welcome to attend.

Starting one hour before the 4 p.m. performance on Apr. 7, hands-on activities let children get up close with the instruments they'll see played on the stage.

Stay after for a Creative Conversation 
Following the 4 p.m. performance on Apr. 7, young audience members can ask questions and hear stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with some of the artists.
