In the classic tale of "Peter and the Wolf," young boy Peter decides to save his village from the wolf with the help of his animal friends. National Marionette brings the story to PST with marionette puppets!


About the show: Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf has enchanted audiences since its premier in 1936. Based on the original Russian Folktale, National Marionette Theatre’s version of the story features the beautiful music from Prokofiev’s orchestral score combined with stunning scenery and hand crafted marionettes. Set in turn of the century Russia, our production tells the story of how Peter, along with his animal friends captures the wolf.

For over 40 years, this award-winning company has been entertaining audiences around the world and are noted for their amazing manipulation technique and imaginative fully staged productions.
