Live & on screen: Stuart Hancock conducts Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf along with the 2008 Oscar-winning animation in aid of Music Masters

Peter and the Wolf

Composer Stuart Hancock presented the animated film, We're Going on a Bear Hunt with his own live music last year, now Stuart is back with another animated film and another live score. On Saturday 18 November at Regent Hall in Oxford Street, Stuart will be conducting the St Paul's Sinfonia in Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf with the 2008 Oscar-winning stop-motion animated film directed by Suzie Templeton. All profits will go to the music education charity, Music Masters. The event is ideal for family audiences (kids aged 5+) and there are three performances during the day.

The event features an extended introduction to the score and the film, with special guest the film director Suzie Templeton, together with the actual puppets from the film. The performance will open with a preview trailer for another animated film: Kensuke’s Kingdom (based on the Michael Morpurgo book of the same name, being released in 2024) with Stuart's original score performed live.
