In this version of Peter and The Wolf, we include original and fun variations to Sergei Prokofiev's well-known children's classic. Of course, you will see your old favorites, including the Wolf, Peter, Grandfather, the Bird, Cat and Ducksbut we will also feature lively performances by leaping Frogs, Villagers, Squirrels and Hunters, and an additional dream sequence for the Wolf. Kirsten Oakley, Footworks Artistic Director, has added wonderful twists to the story, to make the audience laugh while allowing more artistry for the dancers.
Since the story ballet Peter and the Wolf is only a one-act production, Kirsten Oakley has added yet another genre of dance to the mix: Prokofievs Classical Symphony, a George Balanchine-inspired ballet choreographed in the neoclassical style. A more sleek and modern style, it features classical ballet movements but with increased energy and speed, pared-down sets and costumes, and without any reliance on a narrative.
