Peter & The Wolf by National Marionette Theatre
December 30, 2013 - January 2, 2014
December 5- January 2
About the show: Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf has enchanted audiences since its premier in 1936. Set in turn of the century Russia, this elegant production tells the story of how Peter, along with his animal friends, outsmarts and captures a wolf. Each performance begins with a bumbling conductor who introduces the orchestral instruments and demonstrates--with a bit of slapstick humor--how their sounds represent each character in the story. The production features the beautiful music of Prokofiev’s orchestral score combined with stunning scenery and hand-crafted marionettes.
After the show, join us in the lobby to make your very own fairy tale character finger puppet!
