Peter and the Wolf

Peter and the Wolf is a composition for children written by the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev. It tells the story of a little boy and his adventures in the forest. Different instruments are used to represent the characters in the story. There are lots of version of youtube that you can listen to, but this is my favourite:

The music has been choreographed – this means that a dance has been written to the music.

Watch and listen to this ballet. Can you find out more about the instruments who play the cat, bird and the Grandfather?
