Welcome to our final day of Busy Kids Do Peter & the Wolf!
Today we’ll learn a bit about the ballet as we finish listening to Prokofiev’s masterpiece, and then we’ll review some things we learned these past few days.
Let’s get started!
I mentioned in our composer worksheet yesterday that Peter & the Wolf has also been adapted into a ballet.
Learn more about the ballet in this worksheet.
Watch the ending of our symphony (starting from the 23:30 mark) as performed by The Royal Ballet School in the video below.
Let’s see how much you remember from our camp! Answer the questions below.
REWRITE THE ENDING
Our story ends with Peter capturing the wolf, convincing the hunters to take it with him to the zoo, and a celebratory processional through the town.
Rewrite the story with a different ending.
Now imagine that you must compose music for this new ending. What instruments do you use? How does the music sound? Is it fast or slow? Loud or soft? How should it make the audience feel when they hear it?
