Our youngest audiences are invited on a woodland adventure as Peter and his friends, Bird, Cat and Duck, try to capture the Wolf who is causing havoc in the countryside. Created by Queensland Ballet’s Greg Horsman, this brand-new ‘My First Ballet’ production pays homage to the 1960 season of Peter and the Wolf, choreographed by Queensland Ballet Founder and former Artistic Director, Charles Lisner OBE. Peter the Wolf will charm audiences as they venture into the captivating world of one of the world’s most loved fairy tales.

My First Ballet production

Featuring the iconic music of Sergei Prokofiev from his symphonic fairy tale first performed in 1936 and accompanied by a narrator, this delightful ballet will capture the imaginations of children and the young at heart, as we bring story, ballet and symphonic music together.  

Third in the ‘My First Ballet’ series, Peter and the Wolf provides an immersive live theatre experience for children. With a suite of educational and creative activities to be enjoyed around the performances, at home or elsewhere, children’s creativity will thrive.
