The School of Ballet Arizona will present Peter and the Wolf and Other Works in collaboration with the Phoenix Youth Symphony Orchestras on May 25 and 26 at Orpheum Theatre. Before concluding his final season as artistic director with Ballet Arizona, Ib Andersen will present the world premiere of Peter and the Wolf, along with some of his beloved pieces from over the years.

First composed in 1936 by Sergei Prokofiev, Peter and the Wolf is a “symphonic tale for children” featuring a narrator and different themes for each character in the story. The highly anticipated narrator for this performance will be Geoffrey Owens, a well-known actor, teacher and director. Owens is best known for his role on “The Cosby Show,” but has appeared in numerous stage productions, was a member of a diverse Shakespeare company and recently narrated Aaron Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait” for The Phoenix Symphony.

In addition to the premiere of Peter and the Wolf, The School of Ballet Arizona will celebrate several other works created by Andersen throughout his storied career at Ballet Arizona, including Swan Lake, The Firebird, Play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo & Juliet.
