Peter and the Wolf, with story and score by Sergei Prokofiev, has introduced countless children to classical music. Since it premiered in 1936, there have also been countless interpretations and reinterpretations of the piece. It has been narrated by everyone from Prokofiev’s immediate family members to musicians ranging from David Bowie to Jacqueline du Pré. Rocker Alice Cooper joined the illustrious list of narrators with the creation of a new, American version of this classic work: Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood.
