Two works by Sergei Prokofiev Adapted and choreographed by Susan Endrizzi
Peter and the Wolf: Against his grandfather's wishes, brave Peter sets out to capture a wolf. Along the way he encounters some animal friends and becomes the hero of his village. Based on a popular Russian children's story and set to Prokofiev's world-famous score, this is a magical introduction to classical music and ballet.
First movement of Prokofiev's "Piano Concerto No.3." This abstract contemporary ballet piece shows the diversity of Prokofiev's music, when compared to the more traditional Peter and the Wolf.
One of the world's leading string quartets, the St. Petersburg was founded in 1985 as the Leningrad Quartet. The Grammy nominated quartet blazed a trail through international chamber music competitions. Tao Lin joins them to form a piano quintet.
