A modern twist on the Prokofiev classic, this production features captivating large-scale puppetry and an original score performed live by Mother Falcon, a band NPR describes as “the little orchestra that can do the impossible.” The story follows Petra, the granddaughter of the fabled Peter.  When a wolf threatens her home and animal friends, her adventures become a showcase of bravery and compassion. The show is stunning piece of visual and musical storytelling, featuring masterful puppetry and an original musical score performed live by Mother Falcon. This exceptional experience leaves audiences with increased empathy for the animals that share our earth.
