Verb Ballets presents Peter and the Wolf! The story ballet choreographed by Pamela Pribisco is a captivating 30-minute work set to the well know classical music of Sergei Prokofiev. In 1936, Prokofiev composed Peter and the Wolf to introduce children to the different instruments of the orchestra. Verb Ballets performs the story of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf as told through dance. The ballet introduces the plot through the different instruments and the dancers bring the colorful characters to life. There will be an opportunity to learn the movements of some of the characters prior to the beginning of the performance. With a donation by August 14, 2020 at noon a ticket link will be provided prior to the performance. Due to closures of theatres and large gatherings caused by COVID-19, Verb Ballets continues to look for ways to innovate and bring new dance experiences to the community. For the 2020-21 season, Verb Ballets launched a new series of private live stream performances called ACCESS/Verb. Peter and the Wolf is geared towards engaging young audiences in ballet for the ACCESS/Verb series.
