PETER and THE WOLF with Orpheus Sinfonia

PETER and THE WOLF with Orpheus Sinfonia

Belcombe Court


Peter and the Wolf

Come and meet Peter, his grandfather, the hunters, the villainous wolf in this family-friendly production.

This delightful concert, suitable for all the family, will bring young people face-to-face with one of the greatest musical works for children – Prokofiev’s colourful Peter and the Wolf. Written for a children’s theatre in Moscow in 1936, this enduring musical story is based on an original narration by the composer. With each character in the story represented by a different instrument and sound, Peter and the Wolf offers the perfect introduction to the orchestra. Come and meet Peter, his grandfather, the hunters, the villainous wolf and a whole menagerie of animals – all brought to life by Oliver Gooch and the dynamic Orpheus Sinfonia, who will set things going with their unique interactive introduction to the orchestra.

Conductor: Oliver Gooch
Orchestra: Orpheus Sinfonia
Guest Narrator: To be announced

Performances will take place in a spectacular Saddlespan structure. With its simple architectural design and clean modern shape the Saddlespan offers amazing acoustics. This indoor/outdoor structure allows the ability to accommodate a larger socially distanced audience in a safe environment.
