The second act comprises of the original Peter and the Wolf, while Act 1 serves as a prequel to the classic story, featuring a text by [Richard Sparks] and music by [Erik van der Wurff]. The first act is set in a picturesque classroom that opens onot a meadow and centres on a boy and his classmates, each of whom foreshadows a character from [Prokofiev]'s masterpiece. There's the vain and self-involved wolf; the bickering duck and bird; and the cat. Narrating the action is their inventive and inspiring teacher, who guides the performers and audience through a magical day at school. In Act 2 the classroom dissolves, and the children become the characters from [Prokofiev]'s Peter and the Wolf. Supported by Classic FMProducer In the Wings. Author Richard Saparks.
