Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Claudio Abbado

This brilliantly inventive visualisation of Prokofiev's beloved musical tale features Sting, Claudio Abbado, members of London's celebrated Theatre de Complicite, and some fantastic Spitting Image puppetry.

'Sting's knack for getting into character as well as his talent for creating voices lends an appropriately cartoonish atmosphere to the proceedings ... With Abbado's playfully dramatic conducting ... a Peter that's fun for kids as well as adults.'

A Prokofiev Fantasy was directed by Christopher Swann, Roger Law and Steve Bendelack. It was produced by Joanna Beresford and Frances Peters.
