That is correct, that is what it is about.<br>In 2005 the city of Nantes is cellebrating the year of Jules Verne. Throughout the year, the city of his birth, Nantes, will pay hommage to the immagination and spirit of Verne. This year-long celebration coincides with the centennial of his disappearance in 1905. The pictures on that web site were taken from a 4 day "spectacle" put on by one of France's most popular street theatre troupes, the Co. Royale de Luxe. The title of the street show, "The Sultan of The Near East Visits on His Time Travelling Elephant", and it's troupe of actors are supposed to open the world and go beyond its borders in reaching the unknown, all the while giving a taste of the extrodinary and bizarre to those who venture along with them. The space capsule you see in the middle of the city square is piloted by a "petite géante". The Sultan will arrive on his elephant to open the capsule and together with "la petite géante" will tour the city of Nantes.<br><br>
