Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf is one of the most well known pieces of music ever written. In this energetic new work, David Bolger has taken this timeless story of courage and imagination as inspiration, and told the story through the eyes of a wolf! Filled with dance and live music, this fun and theatrical production will take children and families on a thrilling adventure to explore and discover contemporary dance and performance at its best.

“Reassuringly traditional and startlingly modern… The Wolf and Peter is funny, imaginative, and, finally, very moving.” ★★★★★ The Irish Times

Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and by Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain
