New, Cool Peter And The Wolf

How cool is this: to mark the 70th anniversary of the first performance of Peter and the Wolf in Moscow, the Royal Albert Hall is hosting the world premiere of a brand new stop-frame version of the story along with live accompaniment from the Philharmonia Orchestra.

According to the Philarmonia website "the stop-frame film... offers a fantastical and intriguing interpretation of the world famous story, with ingenious new twists woven into the original tale, which will entertain both adults and children alike."

Judging by the description we found over on the filmmakers site the film looks like it's going to be a corker too:

It’s a wolf eat duck world. But it’s a world where little boys can find extraordinary courage and catch the wolf. Peter slips the guard of his haunted, over-protective grandfather, and with a little help from a crazy bird and a dreamy duck (and none whatsoever from a fat, lascivious cat and two hooligan hunters), outsmarts the wolf.
