Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals 25’
Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf 25’

‘The meadow is a dangerous place. What if a wolf should come out of the forest? What then?’ Grandfather’s warning to Peter echoes through childhood, and Prokofiev’s adventure story of a boy and his animal accomplices continues to captivate audiences young and not so young. It is paired with perhaps the other great classic for children, Saint-Saëns memorable menagerie in this special Family Prom. It is conducted by Marin Alsop, whose passionate devotion to inspiring the next generation of audiences and musicians is a vital part of her world-wide career.
