This tantalizing version of the classic Russian folk tale, "Peter & The Wolf" brings together all the elements of growing up – daring, defiance, confidence and courage. THE MUSIC: A different instrument and melody (or "leitmotif") represents each character of the play, creating an excellent link to understanding all types of music. THE STORY: A true adventure about a spirited young boy who meets the challenge of danger with courage, creativity and leadership. THE CELEBRATION: The value of love, friendship and caring. The lessons of greed, arrogance and prejudice. There is innocence and wisdom, youth and maturity, conflict resolution, moral development, and beauty in the natural order of life!
