Sergei Prokofiev’s classic children’s tale never looked or sounded so good, as Suzie Templeton’s Academy Award-winning short film was accompanied by the beautiful live music of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

Life isn’t great when you are incessantly picked on by the town bullies, live with a paranoid grandfather, and your only real friend is a duck.

This was life for Peter, a shy, stick-thin lad who longed for nothing more than the freedom to explore the wild and wonderful forest behind his fortress-like home. One day the temptation proved too much and Peter stumbled headlong into a wilderness that holds both joy and danger.

Peter and the Wolf was preceded by a narrated orchestral performance of New Zealand composer Jenny McLeod’s The Emperor and the Nightingale. A magical night for all ages.
