Peter and the Wolf

This short animated film (2006) was created by Suzie Templeton and is based on the classic children's story and set to the music of Prokovief.

In 1936 Sergei Prokofiev was commissioned by the Central Children's Theatre in Moscow to write a new musical symphony for children. The intent was to cultivate 'musical tastes in children from the first years of school'. Intrigued by the invitation, Prokofiev completed Peter and the Wolf in just four days.
