Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky


October 20–22, 2023



Bass Performance Hall


A serious puppet show at the orchestra? Only at the Fort Worth Symphony, where the Canadian touring group Old Trout Puppet Workshop visits to bring Prokofiev’s colorful Peter and the Wolf to life with large-scale puppetry while the orchestra performs the score. Yep, that means puppet Peter, puppet bird, puppet wolf and the rest. To open the concert, FWSO Music Director Robert Spano will lead the orchestra in another magical children’s tale: the second act of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet with its striking character dances.
