Sun 2/8/15 1:00PM Boettcher Concert Hall The Animated Orchestra


Magic Circle Mime Company: Peter and the Wolf

The Prokofiev classic becomes an exciting theatrical and musical experience in this fifty-minute production. The narration is replaced by movement and the concert hall becomes the scene of action as the conductor’s assistant (Peter) tries to capture a vicious wolf that threatens orchestra and audience alike. With the help of the musicians, good triumphs over evil and the concert ends in victorious celebration.
