The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra teams up with Melbourne’s favourite comedian Josh Thomas for Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood, the untold prequel to Prokofiev’s classic tale.
Experience the favourite family story with fresh eyes and ears as Josh Thomas narrates the story of a newly orphaned Peter who flies from Russia to LA to stay with his aging hippy grandfather who works for a Hollywood movie star. Peter is swept up in adventures that includes the building of a giant robot, a whirlwind helicopter chase where he (or may not) capture a wolf in a forbidden meadow.
Josh Thomas will narrate from the stage, alongside conductor Brett Kelly who will guide the orchestra as the story unfolds on a big screen. Adding to the entertaining production will be star percussionist Jason Mills, who will recreate all the sound effects using props on stage.
A beautiful way to introduce the family to classical music. Kids will love it. For young children and their families. All tickets $45. Saturday 16 September at 11am, Hamer Hall, Arts Centre Melbourne.
