The Sultan's Elephant

This is well over a month old but I am still in awe of the whole production. The Sultan's Elephant came to London May 4th to the 7th, 2006, to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Jules Verns passing. The production company, Royal de Luxe, put on the show.

I first saw this video taken at the performance. You can also find videos on Youtube and photos on Flickr. The performance is based on Vern's story, "La visite du sultan des Indes sur son éléphant à voyager dans le temps" (literally, "Visit From The Sultan Of The Indies On His Time-Traveling Elephant"). The next show will be in Antwerp, July 6th - 9th.

The elephant is worth the trip but the little giant girl may have stolen the show.
