Sergei Prokofiev and Disney’s Peter and the Wolf

Peter and the Wolf is a 1946 animated short based on the 1936 musical composition and fairy tale by Sergei Prokofiev, produced by Walt Disney and narrated by Sterling Holloway. It was originally released theatrically as a segment in Make Mine Music. Then re-issued as a short before the film of Fantasia. And then as a stand alone video in the 1990s.

February 28, 1938, Sergei Prokofiev, came to Disney Studios and met Walt Disney. Prokofiev performed the piano version of Peter and the Wolf for “le papa de Mickey Mouse”, as Prokofiev described him in a letter to his sons.

In Disney’s animated adaptation of Sergei Prokofiev’s masterpiece, every character is represented musically by a different instrument. The music tells the tale of a young Peter who decides to go hunting for the wolf that’s been prowling around the village. Along the way, he is joined by his friends Sasha the bird, Sonia the duck and Ivan the cat. All the fun comes to end, however, when the wolf makes an appearance
