Children’s Day Concert: Peter and The Wolf
Family members of all ages are welcome to join adventurous Peter, the bad wolf, and the magic puppets of Sema Thai Marionette in a feast for the ears and eyes. The program starts with the orchestral version of Phama Khwe, better known in Thailand as Chang (Elephant). The audience will then be introduced to each instrument in the orchestra by Britten’s colorful Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. Mahidol voice faculty Ben Dooley narrates Prokofiev’s enduring musical personification of a youth and his animal friends. The story is brought to life using Thai traditional puppets, a unique craft dating back centuries.

Music for young people that is as much fun for the performers as the audience is the hallmark of the Thailand Philharmonic’s efforts to entertain a new generation of music lovers. These concerts are now a well-known tradition in the orchestral calendar and a perfect opportunity to bring the whole family to the magic environment of Prince Mahidol Hall.
Children of all ages are welcome to join adventurous Peter, the bad wolf, the magic marionettes of Sema Thai Puppet Troupe in a performance of Prokofiev’s enduing musical masterpiece, Peter and the Wolf. The inclusion of Thai traditional puppets in this special production proves the universality of the story and its tuneful music. The story will be read by the charismatic voice of Mahidol voice faculty Benjamin Dooley.
Not familiar with the instruments of the orchestra? No problem! Let Maestro Thanapol Setabrahmana introduce you to them all in Benjamin Britten’s rousing Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. No children’s concert in Thailand is complete without the tune that all Thais know from the earliest age: Bhama Khwe, the song of the elephant.
