Conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada conducts an unforgettable performance of Prokofiev’s enduring classic, Peter and the Wolf, featuring Academy, Grammy, and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Sir Ben Kingsley. Kingsley will serve as the narrator for Prokofiev’s musical tale about Peter, a boy who outsmarts a wolf with the help of a duck, a cat, and a bird.

A storytelling thread will weave the evening’s program together, as Rossini’s Overture to The Thieving Magpie and Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier will also be performed.
