Peter & the Wolf and Carnival of the Animals

Part of the London Mozart Players 2021/22 Season

Add to my Calendar 11-06-2022 16:00 11-06-2022 18:00 36 Peter & the Wolf and Carnival of the Animals Lions! Elephants! A cheeky duck! London Mozart Players’ lockdown hits Peter & The Wolf and Carnival of the Animals come to life at Fairfield in a concert for all the family. London Mozart Players was the first orchestra to offer daily online content during the first Covid lockdown, including an array of enchanting films for children (much appreciated by parents!). This June sees their two big lockdown hits, Peter & the Wolf (more than 200,000 views on YouTube) and Carnival of the Animals, come to Fairfield Halls with the orchestra playing live, and the lockdown films projected overhead on the concert hall’s big screen. The brilliantly comic suite Carnival of the Animals is perfect for younger listeners, and our projections of animal illustrations and animations, alongside original poems, will bring Saint-Saëns’ roaring lions and braying donkeys to life. The tortoise, kangaroos and hens will then be joined by the duck, bird and big bad wolf from Prokofiev’s iconic musical drama, Peter & the Wolf. We are delighted that national treasure Baroness Floella Benjamin will narrate both stories, with the LMP musicians, their families and pets joining the film cast as Peter, his pets, the huntsmen and, of course, the wolf! If your children enjoyed these films online, bring them along to Fairfield to hear the music performed by Croydon’s resident orchestra, and watch them fall in love with these beguiling stories all over again!
