He’s back for the 10th year! Isaac Mizrahi is, once again, narrating Prokoviev’s Peter & the Wolf at the Guggenheim this holiday season. I have seen the performance several times and it is pure delight! Mizrahi’s charisma alone is worth going to see. Talented musicians and performers add to the dazzling performance and make for a fun show that introduces young children to the classic tale and to its popular music.
In what has become an annual holiday tradition, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents ten performances of Sergei Prokofiev’s charming children’s classic, Peter & the Wolf. Reviving the sold-out 2015 production, for the tenth year, renowned fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi will narrate the production. Brad Lubman will conduct Ensemble Signal. Mizrahi will narrate, direct, design the set and costumes, and his special cast will perform choreography by John Heginbotham, in which the familiar characters come to life in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Guggenheim. The story brings 30 minutes of suspense, including a happy ending, and allows the young and young-at-heart to hear and learn the various instruments in the orchestra. The performance is recommended for children ages 5.
