The Oscar®-winning short film, Peter & the Wolf (certificate U) will be screened in a
covered, all-weather auditorium in Bury St Edmunds Abbey Gardens, accompanied
by live performances from Orpheus Sinfonia between Thursday 7 and Sunday 10
The delightful, animated modern adaption by Breakthru Films, recreates Russian
composer Sergei Prokofiev’s 1936 classic symphonic fairy tale bringing the classic
story of Peter and The Wolf brilliantly to life. It recounts a magical world in which little
boys can find the strength and courage to overcome their fears and the ever-present
dangers that surround them.
This much-loved tale has resonated deeply with over five generations of children,
enchanted by its power and sense of fun. This fantastical version by prize-winning
director Suzie Templeton was produced using a classic stop-motion animation
technique for TV and DVD as well as for screening theatrically worldwide
accompanied by a live orchestra.
There will be a selection of food and beverage stalls in the Abbey Gardens and
blankets can be brought in if particularly sensitive to cold weather. The 45-minute
screenings from Thursday 7 to Saturday 9 December will begin at 1pm, 3.15pm,
5.30pm and 7.45pm, while on Sunday 10 December they will be from 1pm, 3.15pm
and 5.30pm. To book tickets priced at £15 for adults and £8 for a child, under 5s free
