The Vancouver Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra with Goh Ballet presents the children’s symphonic classic Peter and the Wolf at the iconic Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Vancouver.

Peter and the Wolf

When: One day only! Sunday, November 27, 2016 at 2:00pm
Tickets: Available online now and at the door for $15 adults, $10 students & seniors

The Vancouver Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra (“VAMSO”) is bringing Vancouver yet another delightful show, just in time for the holiday season, and this year they teaming up with an exciting new partner. For the first time in Vancouver arts history, VAMSO will be performing with Goh Ballet in a charming presentation of a classic symphonic fairytale – Peter and the Wolf.

Gorgeous dancers from Goh Ballet will transform into characters from Sergei Prokofiev’s children’s masterpiece about a brave boy who outwits a fearsome foe. Russian composer Prokofiev wrote the work in 1936 as an introduction to classical music for children, with each character in the story demonstrating different instrument families: Peter the strings, Bird as the flute, Cat voiced by clarinet, Duck as the oboe, Wolf as French horn.

Music Director Leslie Dala will lead the 100+ young virtuoso musicians of VAMSO in accompanying the Goh Ballet dancers, as well as Bard on the Beach founder and local theatre luminary Christopher Gaze. Joining a long list of celebrated figures who have previously narrated the musical fable – Alec Guinness, Sean Connery, David Bowie, to name a few – Gaze will lend his voice to weave the tale on stage.
