Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood

  • Overview

    PETER AND THE WOLF IN HOLLYWOOD is a new creation by critically acclaimed Brooklyn-based production company, Giants Are Small, giving an invigorating new perspective on Prokofiev’s classic.

    The live production is an unforgettable journey of classic music and visual wonder, featuring the Des Moines Symphony conducted by Joseph Giunta. Co-directed by Doug Fitch and Edouard Getax, the production is based on the award-winning app and album co-produced by Duetsche Grammophon, featuring Alice Cooper as narrator.

    Prokofiev’s tale is set in modern-day Los Angeles and anchored with a thrilling prequel that sets off when the wolf escapes from the local zoo. Peter is swept up in an exciting adventure that includes the building of a giant robot, a whirlwind helicopter chase, and a moment of poignant introspection— all before he enters the forbidden meadow where he finally captures the wolf.

    The prequel features excerpts of some of the greatest classical music ever written and leads seamlessly into Prokofiev’s complete original score.
