Peter and the Wolf

May 1, 2022, 3 pm
University of Puget Sound Schneebeck Hall
Featuring the Full Orchestra
Sergei Prokofiev‘s Peter and the Wolf tells the story of a young boy living with his grandfather in a forest clearing, and the adventure he and his animal friends have when a wolf comes through the garden gate. Written as a child’s introduction to the orchestra, each character is represented by a different instrument or group of instruments and features the full orchestra and a narrator to bring to life this classic tale.
No instrument petting zoo for this performance
