Peter and The Wolf and The Angel Tree
Performed by Robert Ivey Ballet Company, featuring local children from the community.

Peter and the Wolf is a teaching ballet which has been delighting Charleston families since 1979.  Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev was commissioned byet the Central Children's Theatre in Moscow in 1936 to write a musical symphony for children with the intent and mission to "cultivate musical tastes in children from the first years of school." The result was "Peter and the Wolf" which the Robert Ivey Ballet has turned into a must-see holiday tradition.  "Peter" is a light-hearted tale of a young boy, Peter, who outsmarts a hungry wolf with the help of his animal friends.  Full of humor and lively action, Peter and the Wolf features a dramatic narrative soundtrack which pairs each character with a musical instrument and identifiable tune: for example, Peter is represented by a piccolo flute, and the ducks are depicted by the oboe.  Robert Ivey's witty choreography showcases the talent of our Robert Ivey Ballet youth and children dancers.  Gorgeous romantic lighting, adorable costumes and a charming set  all combine to vividly bring this classic to life.  

Peter and the Wolf is performed with the Angel Tree, a beloved Charleston Christmas tradition, in which local children perfom with our professional dancers, to create a Snow Court.  The ballet culminates in one of Mr. Ivey's most enduring works: a classical pas de deux, danced by our professional dancers; and the welcoming of the Star of Bethlehem while softly singing Silent Night.
