Peter and the Wolf

This captivating film is an entirely new conception of Prokofiev's musical introduction to the orchestra, featuring real people and real animals in a colorful, turn-of-the-century American setting. Ray Bolger (Scarecrow in the film "The Wizard of Oz") introduces the characters and their orchestral themes as a chamber orchestra plays in a forest glade, introducing children to an enduring classic with simple charm and gentle humor.
