Prokofiev’s classic ballet has become the favorite of children worldwide.Imaginatively scored so that each character is represented by a particular instrument, the piece provides a playful way to introduce young audiences to the orchestra AND the ballet!
This version of “Peter & the Wolf,” performed to live music played by the ODYSSEUS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA, will be narrated by Mr. Dalton Gregory, a retired elementary school principal and Denton City Councilman.“Carnival of the Animals,” one of Saint Saens’ most well-known works, is a ballet set in 14 movements, each depicting an animal or set of animals.The Orchestration, conducted by Jason Lim, is at once humorous, satirical, and virtuosic providing a perfect foundation for Racina-Torre’s choreography, which will be both classicalAND contemporary highlighting DCCB’s wide range of talent.Ms. Janet Latham, a veteran storyteller through the Texas Storytelling Festival and Tejas Storytelling Association Summer Conference, will be narrating the “Carnival of the Animals”.
With both ballets offering original choreography, original costuming, and a live professional orchestra, this production promises to keep the audience fully engaged AND enchanted!
