Peter and the Wolf
Musical tale by Sergei Prokofiev

Winter Bonfire
by Sergei Prokofiev

New production in concert version

This season children will have the chance to see a particularly attractive project by the Orchestre du Collège de Genève and the Grand Théâtre de Genève. Through his truculent verve and his acting ability, narrator Joan Mompart will allow you to (re)discover two compositions for children by Sergei Prokofiev: Peter and the Wolf and A Winter Bonfire.
Sergey Prokofiev was a great children's music composer. His best-known piece in this genre is, of course, Peter and the Wolf. The well-loved story of young Peter, his apprehensive grandfather, and all the animals of the barnyard and the woods, each character represented by a different musical instrument, is – or should be – a classic of everyone’s childhood. A Winter Bonfire, written in 1950, is the brilliant description in music of a group of city kids’ train trip to a winter youth camp in the forests around Moscow, where they go skating, meet the children of a nearby farm and have a great bonfire under the stars before returning the next day to the city. If it gets too hot this June, bring the family to enjoy Prokofiev’s winter wonderland at the Opéra des Nations!
There will be regular performances of this family-friendly show throughout the month of June. Do not miss it!
