In Prokofiev’s imaginative masterpiece for young audiences, Peter and his animal friends decide to capture a Wolf that’s been prowling about the village! With instruments serving as characters, and the entire story brilliantly narrated, this is a time-honoured children’s introduction to the Orchestra. The CPO delights in Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals, described even by the composer as “such fun!”
Come early for the Instrument Discovery Zoo at 2PM.
