Peter and the Wolf

29 Mar 2020

Following this weekend’s animal theme, we present Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev.

Sergei Prokofiev wrote the story and composed the music for Peter and the Wolf in 1936. It was written in two weeks for a children’s theatre in Moscow. He wrote the music as a child’s introduction to the orchestra with each character being represented by an instrument or group of instruments. Peter and the Wolf was an immediate success and continues to be enjoyed today by children all over the world.

Here it is performed by The Royal Ballet/The Royal Ballet School. The performance lasts about 32 minutes.

There are some scary moments, so best watched as a family.

You can email us at [email protected] – this email address can be accessed by a number of staff in various locations and we will get back to you.

It’s time to stay at home as much as possible.
