Peter and the Wolf

January 12, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center

With The Des Moines Symphony

Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood is a new creation by critically acclaimed Brooklyn-based production company Giants Are Small, giving an invigorating new perspective on Prokofiev's classic. The live production is an unforgettable journey of classical music and visual wonder, with a narrator and the musicians of the Des Moines Symphony creating all the sound effects on stage. The production is based on the award-winning app and album co-produced by Deutsche Grammophon.

Prokofiev's tale is set in modern-day Los Angeles and anchored with a thrilling prequel that is set off when the wolf escapes from the local zoo. Peter is swept up in an exciting adventure that includes the building of a giant robot, a whirlwind helicopter chase, and a moment of poignant introspection--all before he enters the forbidden meadow where he finally captures the wolf. The prequel features excerpts of some of the greatest classical music ever written and leads seamlessly into Prokofiev's complete original score.

“The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities.”
