About this performance

The MSO presents Peter and the Wolf, a classic introduction for the young and young at heart. To set the scene, Cossom’s The Bird’s Voice first introduces the audience to the sights and sounds of a symphony orchestra with a musical tour of the instruments.

The irreverent story of Peter and his menagerie of animals has resonated deeply with generations of children, and this special MSO production has been developed to bring the imaginative world of music alive for young audiences, with the addition of puppets.

It might be a wolf eat duck world out there, but this production of Prokofiev’s story shows us that with enough help from their friends, a boy and a bird can work together to catch a wolf and save the day.
