Peter and the Wolf

A Favorite Classic with Large Puppets!

Listen to Prokofief's beloved music as you watch Peter outsmart the wolf! Eulenspiegel Puppets use beautifully crafted large tabletop puppets and rod puppets to tell this classic tale of a young boy, his grandfather, his pets, and the creatures that live in the meadow and the forest. Eulenspiegel adjunct puppeteer Justin Cornett returns from Vermont to perform the wolf!

This piece was written by Sergei Prokofief in 1936 to cultivate musical taste in children and to introduce them to the instruments in the orchestra. It's still a favorite for youth concerts all over the world.
