Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written.
The classic story has been interpreted by many artists from Disney to the Marx Brothers and won a Grammy award for Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev and Sofia Loren.
CoisCéim Dance Theatre takes this timeless story of courage and imagination as inspiration and here…the story is told through the eyes of a WOLF. Filled with dance and live music, this fun and richly theatrical production by David Bolger gives life to a Bird, a Cat, a Duck, a Boy, and of course a WOLF in a highly energetic original new work. This production features the extraordinary pianist Conor Linehan playing live on stage as The Wolf and Peter takes children and their families on a thrilling adventure to explore and discover contemporary dance and performance at its best.
