Peter and the Wolf

A My First Ballet production
Venue TBC

We are working to secure alternative venues for the performances and programs that we had planned to activate at our brand new Thomas Dixon Centre Studio Theatre in 2021. All tickets will be available for sale from Tuesday 29th June.

#Every step a courageous story

Giggle and gasp as Queensland Ballet performs Peter and the Wolf. Children of all ages, parents and grandparents, can share a lesson in musical appreciation as orchestral instruments accompany the dancers in the reimagined telling of a favourite tale.

There will be squeals of delight as young dancers in colourful, creative costumes tell the tale of a courageous boy, a lovable grandpa, a rascally wolf, an unlucky duck and a graceful bird.

Queensland Ballet's Greg Horsman gives the story a contemporary twist. Peter is a scout that goes on an adventure with his grandfather to the zoo. Danced to an extended version of the original score by Sergei Prokofiev, each instrument represents a character. Peter is represented by the string family; the delicate bluebird follows the notes of the flute while the stealthy wolf is portrayed by the French horns. We all love old Grandpa as he moves steadily to the sound of the bassoon.

Composed as an introduction to the orchestra for children, this lively production fits perfectly with Queensland Ballet’s ‘My First Ballet series’, inspiring the littlest of ballet lovers.
