PETER AND THE WOLF
by Sergei Prokofiev
Works & Process, Guggenheim Museum, NYC, NY 2007
Direction | Isaac Mizrahi
Conductor | George Manahan
Visual Art | Andrew Scott Ross
The fable of a clever young boy who manages to catch a wolf. Prokofiev uses the colors of the orchestra to bring all of the characters, both animal and human, to vivid sonic life.
Artist Andrew Scott Ross re-created scenes from the story in miniature, using torn paper, that audiences could view directly or through binoculars.

"As the tale unfolded, a spotlight illuminated the corresponding section in Mr. Ross’s work. Red light flooded the stage when the Wolf gobbled down the Duck, eliciting an audible gasp from young and old alike." - Steve Smith, The New York Times
