Even the smallest children are charmed by the different animals appearing in Sergey Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. In the Grimm brothers' fairy-tale Red Riding Hood, too, the wolf represents evil. In the Marionette Theatre version, the two stories merge into an entertaining programme for the whole family.
