Product Description

The classic story of Peter & the Wolf comes brilliantly to life in this Oscar®-winning animated film, recounting 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. Prokoviev's much-loved tale has resonated deeply with generations of children, enchanted by its power and sense of fun. This fantastical new version by director Suzie Templeton has been delighting a whole new audience, selling out concert halls worldwide when accompanied by live orchestras. Since these screenings it has been nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA), and has won Best Programme in Performing Arts category at Rose D Or Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, as well as best European Programme at Pulcinella Italian Television Animation Awards. It also won both the Annecy Cristal and the Jury award at the Annecy Animated Film Festival and most recently won the Academy Award® for Best Animated Short (2008). A spellbinding new interpretation of Prokofiev's timeless tale, Peter & the Wolf is sure to be cherished by the whole family.
