Works & Process at the Guggenheim: Peter & the Wolf

Works and Process at the Guggenheim presents ‘Peter & the Wolf’ with Isaac Mizrahi, Dec. 2-10, 2017.

UES dwellers will be seeing a lot preschoolers file in and out of the Guggenheim this week, with the magic of children’s classic, Peter & the Wolf, in full swing. Brooklyn born fashion designer and TV presenter Isaac Mizrahi directs, designs, and narrates Sergei Prokofiev’s 1936 musical fairy tale, Peter & the Wolf. The production is the collaborative result of Mizrahi, who has directed numerous theatrical productions and operas; Choreographer John Heginbotham; Conductor and Composer Brad Lubman; and Ensemble Signal.

The 30-minute story illustrates Peter’s colorful encounters with a bird, a duck, a cat, a wolf, and a hunter—each character represented by an instrument. The lighthearted performance is a delight to both children and adults. While Peter & the Woolf is of course, a children’s play, Mizrahi humors the parents with a theatrical self-awareness, constantly bringing into attention the pseudo-reality that is being reproduced on a stage.
