Peter and the Wolf – 9 Nov - 9 Dec 2017.

Peter’s not supposed to leave his grandfather’s house. There are wolves lurking in the forest, and it’s not safe. But Peter can’t stay inside forever and when he finally adventures out into the surrounding meadow, it’s not long before the wolf appears.

In this electric reimagining of Sergei Prokofiev’s beloved musical fairy tale, director Sophie Roberts and composer Leon Radojkovic bring together a glinting musical adaptation with a six-piece band, puppetry and live videography.

From David Bowie to Dame Edna Everage, Peter and the Wolf has seen an eclectic line-up of narrators throughout its celebrated history.

In this original production, a rotating cast of Silo favourites and well-known personalities will narrate a performance each.

Travel deep into the woods, vanquish your fear, and don’t look behind you.

A magical experience for anyone aged five and up.

  • Direction: Sophie Roberts
  • Musical direction: Leon Radojkovic
  • Design: John Coddington, Daniel Williams, Rachel Marlow
  • Narration: Jacinda Ardern, Alison Bruce, Oliver Driver, David Fane, Rachel House, Michael Hurst, Nathaniel Lees, Stephen Lovatt, Cameron Rhodes, Thomas Sainsbury, Rima Te Wiata, Jennifer Ward-Lealand and others to be announced.
