PETER & THE WOLF/CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS (May 9th, 2015) Krum High School Performance Centre, 811 East McCart St., Krum, TX  76249

Prokofiev’s classic ballet has become the favorite of children worldwide.  Imaginatively scored so that each character is represented by a particular instrument, the piece provides a playful way to introduce young audiences to the orchestra AND the ballet! 

 This version of “Peter & the Wolf,” performed to the music of the Philadelphia Orchestra, is  narrated by David Bowie.  “Carnival of the Animals,” one of Saint Saens’ most well-known works, is a ballet set in 14 movements, each depicting an animal or set of animals.  The choeography, set by Artistic Director, Lisa Racina-Torre, is at once humorous, satirical, and virtuosic providing a perfect foundation DCCB's dancers, which will perform both classical  AND contemporary highlighting their wide range of talent.  

 With both ballets offering original choreography, and original costuming by Ms. Nita Acton of Need-a-Design, this production promises to keep the audience fully engaged AND enchanted!

Besides being the largest dance and theatrical production Denton has to offer, (the cast numbers 200+ dancers/actors of all ages), “A Gift for Emma” adds to the cultural texture of the Denton community by combining the classical heritage of ballet with the ever-changing artscape of modern/contemporary dance, the “in-your-face” style of Hip Hop, and the artistry of  local designers whose props, puppets, set designs and costumes capture even the “oldest child within” and add to the special “flavor” of the production, which is in its 16th year.
