"Peter and the Wolf" at the Houston Zoo

Courtesy River Oaks Chamber Orchestra

What better place than the zoo to watch Sergei Prokofiev’s timeless composition Peter and the Wolf?

The River Oaks Chamber Orchestra and InterActive Theater Company will stage the performance at 2, 3, and 4 p.m. January 18 at the Houston Zoo’s Brown Education Center. Written to inspire children’s interest in classical music and instruments, the show features a story narrator with chamber orchestra and actors portraying Peter, the wolf, and other characters. Fittingly, the story concludes with the wolf spared from hunters and escorted to the zoo. Call 713/533-6500.
