PETER AND THE WOLF & OTHER ANIMAL TALES

performed by the Orchestra of Opéra de Rouen

The concert will begin by setting the tone with arias about animals by Gioachino Rossini and Maurice Ravel. An added delight is a shadow puppet show brought to life by the Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation. Then comes Peter & the Wolf LIVE, a stop-frame animation from BreakThru Films, directed by Suzie Templeton, which won an Oscar® in 2008 for Best Animated Short Film. The film is accompanied by Prokofiev’s celebrated score performed by the Orchestra of Opéra de Rouen conducted by Frédéric Rouillon. In Prokofiev’s action-packed score, we seem to hear Peter’s duck arguing with a little bird and the explosive chaos that ensues when a wolf swallows the poor duck. Peter saves the wolf from encroaching hunters; and, amazingly the duck is heard quacking inside the wolf!
