Peter and the Wolf, November 2 & 3

Oct 9, 2019

On November 2 & 3, the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Yaniv Dinur, presents an all-Prokofiev concert weekend at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center (684 Purchase St., New Bedford).

On Saturday, November 2, 2019, at 7:30pm, Russian-American violinist Yevgeny Kutik, returns as soloist with the NBSO in “Prokofiev Rules,” an evening of musical fireworks dedicated to the composer. Kutik will perform both Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1 and Violin Concerto No. 2– two virtuosic pieces that create opposite sound worlds. The concert also features the world premiere of a newly commissioned narrative for a timeless classic, Peter and the Wolf Reimagined, written and narrated by James VanDemark, and a suite from the stirring ballet Romeo and Juliet. Dinur will present a pre-concert talk on the program at 6:30pm in the Penler Space (adjoining The Z), free and open to the public. Concert sponsor is Burke & Lamb, P.C.

On Sunday, November 3, 2019, at 2:30pm, Dinur and the NBSO present “Peter and the Wolf Family Concert,” an exciting musical experience featuring Magic Circle Mime Company, live narration, and terrific surprises. Magic Circle Mime Company has performed their highly acclaimed show with nearly every major North American orchestra and is regarded as one of today’s premier family attractions with performances that blend the concert orchestra with visual theater. This concert with its tale of wild animals brought to life by the orchestra’s instruments is a great way to introduce the orchestra to children. Exclusive concert sponsor is Hawthorn Medical Associates.
