Petya and the Wolf

****

This is a show that was thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my daughter, and is, as the Fringe guide states suitable for slightly older children with a decent attention span as it based on Sergei Prokofiev’s orchestral adaptation of the story. The two gentlemen acting out the story as if they themselves were puppets used a lovely combination of music, lighting and dance to bring the tale to life and were effective in keeping the audience entranced from start to finish. The small but effective costume changes were amusing along with the remarkably basic props used and these helped bring the story to life, this was an enchanting little show and is well worth a visit if you are visiting the Fringe.

The Fringe guide states that this show is suitable for children at 4+, I would however suggest that this would depend on the individual child as there is quite a bit going on with the music and character changes, but that said, a great show, and thoroghly enjoyable.
