    Will Father Christmas visit Elephant Country? Pom, Flora, Arthur and Alexander aren’t so sure; he hasn’t replied to Zephyr’s carefully-penned letter. Touched by their disappointment, Babar sets out for Europe, where the old man dwells in a grotto. However, he faces numerous obstacles along the way, from false leads to snowball fights in a Bohemian forest. We last heard Shani Diluka exploring Marcel Proust and François Morel performing the words of Raymond Devos. Here they come together, blending the imaginary world of Jean de Brunhoff with the songs of Joseph Kosma. A morning concert to delight young and old alike.
