In this electric contemporary reimagining of Sergei Prokofiev’s beloved musical fairy tale, director Sophie Roberts and composer Leon Radojkovic bring together a glinting musical adaptation of Peter and the Wolf with a six-piece band, puppetry, live videography and narration by special guests.

Peter is not supposed to leave his grandfather’s house. There are wolves lurking in the forest and it’s not safe. But Peter does adventure into the surrounding meadow, and it’s not long before the wolf appears. 

Follow Peter as he travels deep into the woods, vanquish your fear, but don’t look behind you ...
