Pennsylvania Ballet Academy presents Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.
First staged in 1936 by the Moscow Philharmonic as a symphony to introduce children to the instruments of the orchestra, today Peter and the Wolf is beloved by children and adults the world over. This classic ballet – interpreted and choreographed by the Academy’s artistic director Davit Karapetyan – reminds us that to be a hero, one must take risks.
For this special performance, the Academy is uniting with the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra, which is celebrating 75 years of music-making in its 2021-22 season. Audiences of all ages are sure to relish this timeless folk tale brought to life in a unique performance featuring some of the area’s finest ballet students and professional musicians.
The evening also features Divertissement – a sampling of short dances from some of ballet’s most enduring works - performed by Academy students and Lancaster Symphony Orchestra.
