Kids like adventure and so does our Peter, the main character of this wonderful children’s classic Peter and the Wolf. One day, he disobeys his grandfather and ventures into the forest (which his grandfather has made off-limits to him) with the hope to catch a glimpse of the wolf people often mention. As he is in the forest, he meets many animals such as a bird, a duck, a cat, and makes friends with them. Eventually, he spots the wolf and the wolf spots Peter! Yet, in this case, there is no friendship possible but danger…

In Peter and the Wolf, composer Sergey Prokofiev assigned a musical theme played by different instruments to each of his characters:

- Peter's Theme is played by the Strings

- The Grandfather's Theme is played by a Bassoon

- The Bird's Theme is played by a Flute

- The Duck's Theme is played by an Oboe

- The Cat's Theme is played by a Clarinet

- The Wolf's Theme is played by French Horns

- The Hunter's Theme is played by the Drums

An hour-long fun adventure suitable for ages 3 and above
