As part of The Capitol Kids Series, the Capitol Theatre presents Peter and the Wolf on Sunday, February 16 at 2 p.m.

This puppet play premiered at the National Theater of Iceland in 2008. The award-winning, performance stays true to the original story and music created by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936 which familiarizes young people with the instruments of the symphony orchestra.

After the huge success of Metamorphosis in last season’s Capitol Kids Series, Bernd Ogrodnik — puppeteer, puppet builder and designer with formal training in classical music, fine woodworking and movement arts — is proud to offer the unforgettable tale of Peter and the Wolf to audiences across North America.

Ogrodnik has been a prominent figure in the world of puppetry since 1986.

He has toured around the globe as a performer, lecturer and director at international theater festivals, universities and conferences. His exquisite marionette and puppet creations are frequently featured in film, TV, museums and theaters around the world.

His company is based in Iceland, where Ogrodnik serves as the master puppeteer for the National Theater, and is both co-founder and artistic director of the Icelandic Center for Puppetry Arts.
