UNH Dance Company presents Peter & the Wolf and Alice in Wonderland
Presented by University of New Hampshire
March 26 - March 30, 2014
Two works by Sergei Prokofiev
Adapted and choreographed by Susan Endrizzi
Peter and the Wolf: Against his grandfather's wishes, brave Peter sets out to capture a wolf. Along the way he encounters some animal friends and becomes the hero of his village. Based on a popular Russian children's story and set to Prokofiev's world-famous score, this is a magical introduction to classical music and ballet.
First movement of Prokofiev's "Piano Concerto No.3." This abstract contemporary ballet piece shows the diversity of Prokofiev's music, when compared to the more traditional Peter and the Wolf.
Alice in Wonderland
Adapted and choreographed by Gay Nardone
This jazz/tap/aerial interpretation of Alice in Wonderland tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The lines of reality versus fantasy are blurred as Alice desperately tries to find her way back home.
