Giggles and growls galore guaranteed in new children's production

Join a hilarious hunt for a wolf on the loose at Auckland Philharmonia’s newest children’s production, Peter and the Wolf with Dynamotion. For this family-friendly retelling of the beloved musical classic, Peter and the Wolf, super-talented comedy dance troupe, Dynamotion, reunites with Auckland Philharmonia’s full professional orchestra. Over two unmissable performances on 8 June in the Auckland Town Hall, Peter and the Wolf with Dynamotion combines the best of comedy and live music into one fun, riotous production.

Audiences will be hooting and howling as Dynamotion’s Lara Fischel-Chisholm, Tom Sainsbury, plus some of the finest dance comedians Aotearoa has to offer, narrate Prokofiev’s symphonic tale, Peter and the Wolf.  Prokofiev’s well-loved musical classic has delighted tamariki for generations and this comical, interactive production gives it a Kiwi twist. The Auckland Philharmonia will play alongside Dynamotion and illustrate the story using different instruments to play the well-known themes that represent each character.

Dynamotion’s Lara Fischel-Chisholm and Tom Sainsbury are excited to bring their trademark joy, humour, and quirky interpretation to this special children’s production and say, “We are thrilled to get our creative paws on such a well-loved story and score... and to bring the joy of Dynamotion to a show fit for the whole fam.”

Following on from the success of 2023’s Carnival of the Animals, these Auckland Philharmonia concerts in partnership with Dynamotion have become a must-see for primary-aged children and are sure to have their parents and caregivers chuckling along too.

Expect silly costumes, funny characters and Prokofiev’s beloved score as Dynamotion and the Auckland Philharmonia bring Peter and the Wolf to life. Pick your favourite characters and dance and howl along to support them at this creative storytelling that will entertain the whole whānau. There will also be free, fun pre-concert family activities on offer ahead of the show.

Don’t get caught (like you know who) without tickets to Peter and the Wolf with Dynamotion. Head to for event information and booking.
