Classic compositions come to life with marionettes as PETER AND THE WOLF & THE FROG PRINCE performed by Frisch Marionettes open at Center for Puppetry Arts, October 10th through 21st.
A Symphonic Double-Bill! PETER AND THE WOLF is performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s striking musical story, followed by THE FROG PRINCE, set to the lively symphonic score of Dimitri Kabalevsky. Magnificent marionettes share the stage with puppeteers to recreate these two classic tales. Will Peter catch the wolf? Will the Princess honor her promise to the Frog? You’ll find out when the Frisch Marionette Company presents these two classic tales.
