The Hampton Ballet Theatre School, the classical training ground on the East End, celebrating 15 years of dance in the Hamptons, will be performing the enchanting ballet Peter and the Wolf on Friday, July 29th at 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. at Herrick Park, 67 Newtown Lane, East Hampton (rain date: Saturday, July 30th), and Monday, August 1st, at the Children’s Museum of the East End (CMEE) (rain date: Tuesday, August 2nd) 376 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton. This production is a collaboration between the Hampton Ballet Theatre School, the Hampton Festival Orchestra, and surprise guest narrators.
Peter and the Wolf, choreographed by HBTS director Sara Jo Strickland and featuring the beautiful costumes of Yuka Silvera and Kate McManus will come alive for the children of the East End community with the orchestra, ballet, and narration. The ballet will be danced by the students of the Hampton Ballet Theatre School, who range from 4 to 18 years old. The score will be played by the 25 piece Hampton Festival Orchestra, a group of professional musicians all hailing from the East End, conducted under the passionate precision of Dr. Andrew Perea. The story will be narrated by special guest narrators.
This ballet is a treat for all ages, as Sergei Prokofiev’s famous score introduces all the ballet characters as the sounds of different musical instruments. You will not want to miss this exciting, educational performance!
Tickets for the East Hampton performances are $20 in advance or $25 at the door for general admission, with prime and premium orchestra family pod seating (4-5 people) available ranging from $100-$125.
