Peter and the Wolf
May 18 - May 20
A story of courage, adventure and friendship – the award-winning adaptation of Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. A magical treat for young and old with music, puppetry and live animation.
A musical fairy tale written by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936, it was originally intended to teach children about the instruments in an orchestra. In this 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 traveling 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.
This is 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, a part of the Singapore International Festival of Arts 2019.
