Peter and the Wolf
For nearly nine decades, kids have discovered the symphony orchestra through Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf—the tale of a young boy who captures a menacing wolf with the help of his animal friends! As the charming story is narrated, the music vividly illustrates the adventure with different instruments representing each character—from the chirping bird played by the flute, to the grumbling grandfather depicted by the bassoon, to Peter’s own heroic melody singing out in the strings.
And in a delightful twist, audiences will get to hear from the Duck’s perspective following Peter’s success in besting the wolf. It’s not easy being stuck inside a big, scary wolf for that long! Created by Andrew Maxfield, this captivating new composition helps add a bit more context to this time-honored story.
