Whats On - Peter and the Wolf and Carnival of Animals
Peter and the Wolf and Carnival of Animals
Featuring Makoto Ozone (piano).
The SNJO presents new interpretations of two universally popular children's classics in a concert that will appeal to all ages.
Tommy Smith's jazz version of Peter and the Wolf will remain true to Prokofiev's premise that particular instruments are allocated to each character and the wonderful melodies will be lovingly preserved whilst actor Tam Dean Burn will narrate new text specially adapted by Liz Lochhead.
Makoto Ozone's vivid re-imagining of Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals for jazz instrumentation will delight listeners and bring the composer's animal cavalcade to life in ways that not even Saint-Saëns himself could possibly have imagined.
Tickets: £22.50, concessions £21, SNJO youth card holder £5, accompanied schoolchildren free, **Please note: Free accompanied schoolchildren tickets are not available online, call 01382 434940.
