The Gruffalo and Peter and the Wolf
We are delighted to announce the world premiere of a new adaptation of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. This magical book has been re-worked into an enchanting piece for narrator and orchestra by Philip Mackenzie. In the manner of Peter and the Wolf, each character in the tale is represented by a different instrument of the orchestra – any guesses what the Gruffalo will be played by?
And what better piece to go with this than Peter and the Wolf itself – Prokofiev’s timeless tale of one little boy’s bravery as he ignores his grandfather’s stern warnings and catches the wolf with a little help from his friend the bird?
Louis Mander and Mark Webber have teamed up to create a hilarious brand new work based on Kipling’s Just So Stories as a way of introducing children to the sounds of an orchestra.
The perfect Easter treat for all the family!
Performances at 13.00, 15.30 and 18.00 on 7th April and 11.00. 13.30 and 16.00 on 8th April.
