Full description

On the afternoon of SATURDAY NOVEMBER 18th…. Bring the family to Regent Hall on London’s buzzing Oxford Street for a dive into the Prokofiev classic with live orchestra accompanying Suzie Templeton’s beautifully atmospheric Academy Award®-winning stop-motion animated masterpiece (2008 Oscar®-winner – Best Animated Short Film).

Peter is a lonely boy in a bleak wintry world who lives with his over-protective grandfather, just beyond the fence from a world of freedom and wonder – but it’s also a world of danger in the form of a prowling, hungry wolf… With his friends, the fluffy duck and a bird with a broken wing, Peter breaks out and adventure ensues!

Co-starring a gloriously diva-ish cat and a pair of villainous hunters, the animation choreographs exquisitely to Sergei Prokofiev’s famous score, with each character having its own instrumental theme.

The performance will feature some very special guests, and an extended introduction to the orchestral music and themes with St Paul’s Sinfonia, led by composer/conductor Stuart Hancock on the concert stage in front of the big screen.

And – as with all good trips to the movies – there’ll be a trailer (exclusively with live orchestra) previewing an exciting new British animated film coming to cinemas very soon…!

The event duration is 40-45 minutes, with performances at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm.

NOTE: Peter & The Wolf carries a “U” rating from the BBFC. However, please be aware that there are some intense scenes that may upset younger children. As a guideline, it’s recommended for children aged 5 and over. If in doubt, see the teaser below and do seek out and view the full film in advance.
