Peter and the Wolf

Each character is associated with an instrument and a specific musical theme that stimulates the musical imagination

Sergei Prokofiev was a child prodigy who began composing at the age of 6. By the age of 14, he had already written four operas, a symphony and a violin sonata. By putting this traditional tale to music, he invited the young audience to discover orchestral instruments that personify the characters. The story of Peter, a young boy who lives in the Russian countryside with his grandfather, is thus punctuated by musical interludes where the protagonists are all characterized by a specific musical sound. Prokofiev only needed one week to compose this piece of unrivaled freshness. One fine morning, Peter opens the garden gate and goes roaming off into the big fields… And so begins the adventure where he meets the big, bad wolf. It is a tale of initiation and courage that invites us all to confront and overcome our fears.  The artist’s score has been an undeniable success since its publication, for both children and adults.
