Young audiences are invited on a woodland adventure as Peter and his friends, Bird, Cat and Duck, try to capture the Wolf who is causing havoc in the countryside. Created by Queensland Ballet’s Greg Horsman, this brand-new ‘My First Ballet’ production pays homage to the 1960 season of Peter and the Wolf, choreographed by Queensland Ballet founder and former Artistic Director, Charles Lisner OBE.

This immersive live theatre experience for children will charm audiences as they venture into the captivating world of one of the most loved fairy tales.

Featuring the iconic music of Sergei Prokofiev, first performed in 1936 and accompanied by a narrator, this delightful ballet will capture the imaginations of children and the young at heart, bringing story, ballet and symphonic music together.

With a suite of educational and creative activities to be enjoyed around the performances, at home or elsewhere, children’s creativity will thrive.


*Family ticket consists of 2 adults + 2 children
*For group bookings, please phone the Box Office on (07) 3358 8600.
Note: The Thu 06 Aug, 2:30pm performance will be a relaxed performance – designed to be sensory friendly for patrons who are sensitive to lights and noise. Find out more here.


Choreographer: Greg Horsman
Composer: Sergei Prokofiev
