Digital music picturebook inspired by "Peter and the Wolf", with parallels to the pandemic

X

 

SMU Symphonia presents an allegorical digital music picturebook of Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev, deconstructed to draw parallels to the pandemic with childlike whimsicality. Viewers will have the option of a read-through or a click-through experience as you follow Peter in his preparation of a long-awaited concert. Tragedy strikes with the unexpected arrival of the 'Wolf', leaving Peter's dreams crippled, his instruments crushed, and his friends taken away. As the situation turns grave, will Peter find a way to regain the joy in music he used to feel?
