Peter and the Wolf

Silo Theatre (New Zealand)

A story of courage, adventure and friendship, this award-winning adaptation of Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf is a magical treat for young and old with music, puppetry and live animation.

Peter and the Wolf is a beloved musical fairy tale written by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936, originally intended to teach children about the instruments in an orchestra. In this award-winning contemporary adaptation by New Zealand director Sophie Roberts, the orchestra is replaced with a six–piece band and the story is told as a visual spectacle through the use of live animation and puppetry.

After travelling across the world to live with his grumpy Grandfather, Peter is struggling to make friends in his new home. When a wolf escapes from the local zoo, Peter sees an opportunity to become a hero and sets off across the city to capture the wolf. Follow Peter’s journey into the unknown through the lens of a video camera as it discovers a magical world filled with puppets, miniature set pieces and music.

Don’t miss this enduring tale for anyone aged five and up.

Composed by Sergei Prokofiev
