The Queensland Ballet have made the difficult decision to postpone their imaginative retelling of Peter and the Wolf until 2022. The tale of Peter’s curious adventures with his woodland friends was due to open on 16 September at the Judith Wright Arts Centre.
Due to the disruption of the eight-day lockdown and ongoing uncertainty around theatre capacities, Peter, the sly Wolf, Duck, Bird and grumpy Grandfather have made the tough call to postpone their performance to next year; when all children, families and the young at heart can enjoy their beloved symphonic fairytale.
Grandfather is particularly grumpy as this is the fourth time he’s had to change his travel plans since 2020 due to COVID-19. But, he’s got a good feeling about next year.
“The shining light in all of this is when we raise the curtain on the antics of our favourite characters in 2022, we’ll be on our new stage at our redeveloped home at the Thomas Dixon Centre,” said Greg Horsman.
“That will make for a sparkling season not to be missed. Because we are in our own home, we have some extra special plans for this production now, but I won’t spoil the surprise.”
