Peter and the Wolf & Carnival of the Animals

119 Tennyson St, Napier

Young and old, all audiences love Prokofiev’s delightful adventure in music, which helps children identify different instruments of the orchestra while the story about Peter and his animal friends captivates their imaginations.

Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals” features each animal in its own descriptive song, from the royal march of the stately lions to hippity-hopping kangaroos, lumbering elephants, a gracefully swimming swan and more.

Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 is an ingenious construction on the most famous four notes in Western music history: the short-short-short-long motif with which the Fifth Symphony begins. Beethoven would have said about it: “fate is knocking at the door”.
