Celebrating its tenth season of dance education, the Bridgehampton-based Hampton Ballet Theatre School will hold its annual performance of “Peter and the Wolf” on Tuesday, July 26 at the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton, and again on Thursday, July 28 at the Montauk Playhouse Community Center Foundation in Montauk.
The production is a collaboration between the Hampton Ballet Theatre School and the Hampton Festival Orchestra, and will feature a surprise, celebrity guest narrator this year.
“Peter and the Wolf”, choreographed by the director of HBTS, Sara Jo Strickland, with costumes by Yuka Silvera, will virtually come alive for the children of the East End community with the orchestra, ballet and narration. The ballet will be danced by the students of the Hampton Ballet Theatre School, who range in ages from 4 to 18 years old. Guest artist, Adam Baranello, of A&G Dance Company will dance the role of the Grandfather. The score will be played by the 25 piece Hampton Festival Orchestra, a group of professional musicians who all hail from the East End and will be conducted by the passionate precision of Dr. Andrew Perea.
