Comments about PBS Great Perfromances: Peter and The Wolf DVD:

This production sparked my imagination and I experienced a full range of emotions. I was transfixed watching these puppets' characters evolve. Sets and puppets are cleverly crafted. This is one I can enjoy over and over again. I'm eager to share it with my grandchildren

Riveting!

Comments about PBS Great Perfromances: Peter and The Wolf DVD:

My husband and I watched this with our two year-old grandson this past Christmas. We were all mesmerized ! Up to then, our grandson had only listened to the music/narration on one of our old records...narrated by Sterling Holloway. He loved it and knew several of the 'instrument characters' already. Watching it on PBS absolutely fascinated us all. I became concerned just before the end (knowing the wolf is supposed to be shot and watching the taunting made us root for him). Concerns were totally unjustified, and we much preferred this ending to the original. Also enjoyed the "how it was done' scenes.
