I have had a huge attraction to the music of Sergei Prokofiev for about two years now. I was blessed to go and see the ballet Romeo and Juliet in San Francisco. It was the first time that I had ever seen a full-scale ballet done by a professional company along with the live orchestra. It was the most awesome experience…I didn’t want to leave. Dance of the Knights is outstanding. Here is a link that you can get a taste of it:

This started my fascination with Prokofiev’s music. I had heard and shared with my children many times the music and story of Peter and the Wolf. If you haven’t shared this with your family, I highly recommend finding the book and music at your library. It is very enjoyable to listen to and your children will soon learn to pick out each of the instruments and characters they portray.
Here are some links to Amazon for CDs that I own.
Watch Dance of the Knights on YouTube –your kids will love it!
