“Peter and the Wolf”, choreographed by the director of HBTS, Sara Jo Strickland, along with beautiful costumes by Yuka Silvera, will virtually come alive for the children of the East End community with the orchestra, ballet and narration.
The ballet will be danced by the students of the Hampton Ballet Theatre School, who range from 4 to 18 years old. The score will be played by the 25 piece Hampton Festival Orchestra, a group of professional musicians who all hail from the East End and will be conducted by the passionate precision of Dr. Andrew Perea. The story will be narrated by special guest narrators: Vincenzo Harty for the Montauk performance and Meaghan Strickland for the CMEE and Southampton Cultural Center performances.
This ballet is a treat for all ages, as Sergei Prokofiev’s famous score introduces all the ballet characters as sounds from musical instruments. You will not want to miss this exciting, educational performance.
