Peter and the Duck (for Adults!)
What if Sergei Prokofiev's beloved composition "Peter and the Wolf" -- the musical symphony for children -- contained fake news?
The Bearded Ladies Cabaret's John Jarboe and the Revolution Wind Quintet explore Prokofiev's dark story by removing the quacking duck from the classic story's center. Join them for a "happy hour" musical meditation on generational angst, propaganda, Soviet influence and the dangers of story time. Cake and cocktails served!
(Kids performance is a separate event at 2 p.m.)
Text written and Performed by John Jarboe
Dramaturgy and Outside Eye, Mary Tuomanen
