Sergej Prokofiev's world-famous musical work Peter and the Wolf has got a female hero in figure and actress Madeleine Barosen Herholdt from Kattas Figurteater. She plays all the animals, partly with characters, partly with her own body, because Petra is a girl who carries all these possibilities in her. In the audience there are children that the lonely Petra would love to play with, if she dares, and she plays a presentation of her world in the hope of winning friends. The performance is best suited for children from 3 - 8 years.
The performance is a collaborative project between Katta's Puppet Theater in Tønsberg and the Royal Norwegian Marines Music Corps in Horten. The performers give the audience both in a bag and a sack; here is both a puppet show and a concert.
