About the Program

The timeless tale of Peter and the Wolf is brought to life by members of DBSE (the Ballet’s pre-professional dance company), our Opera Artists-in-Residence, and the Philharmonic Orchestra. Geared specifically for children, the first stop on this magical, musical trip is Peter’s House, where he narrates his fairytale story.

Additional showtimes are available for student groups. To book for your group, contact our learning team at education@daytonperformingarts.org. To book a future program for your group, click here.
