Pennsylvania Ballet Academy Presents Peter and the Wolf, with Lancaster Symphony Orchestra
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 the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra.
