With a laugh, Lalov told the story of a friend who was the artistic director of the Syracuse Opera in New York.

“He called and said, `Giorgio, I’m struggling selling tickets for my “Aida.”‘ Somebody told him, why not put an elephant in. Three days after, he called me and said he sold out.”

I read it here, in an article about Teatro Lirico.
