Hmm, if I remember correctly there was a gentleman from Germany who was
using the ZVS flyback driver (which might fit your purpose on its own
with a hearty flyback under oil) to drive a new style (high
frequency/solid state?) microwave over transformer. He was getting the
voltage you're looking for with a generous amount of amperage to boot.
Might want to check out the first forum posting for the ZVS driver on
the 4hv board. Somewhere amongst those 8 or 10 pages there is a posting
describing his setup along with a picture of the microwave transformer
he was using and the intimidating arcs he was getting from it.

Unfortunately the output must be AC, so a multiplier will not work. I
though about a regular unrectified flyback circuit but I'm pretty sure
driving a flyback that hard will kill it in short order. Thanks anyhow.
