About

The Magic Circle Mime Company brings one of its most cherished and acclaimed productions back to the Kennedy Center! Sergei Prokofiev's classic work for children--a symphonic fairy tale in which each character is represented by a different orchestral instrument--becomes a dazzling theatrical and musical event. Replacing narration with movement, the concert follows conductor's assistant Peter as he tries to capture a menacing wolf that threatens orchestra and audience alike. With conductor Emil de Cou and the musicians' help, good triumphs over evil in a production that one Seattle Times reviewer calls "the most musically excellent, audience-involving show I've ever seen!" Ages 5 and up.
 
Come early for the musical instrument "Petting Zoo." Starting one hour before each Family concert, this hands-on activity in the Kennedy Center Atrium gives kids a chance to get up close with the instruments they'll see played on the stage--from violins and harp to oboes and flutes. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
 
Stay after the 3 p.m. concert for a "Kids' Chat." Following the 3 p.m. Family Concert, kids can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the artists.
