Sponsored by: Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia

A Jewish version of Prokofiev's "Peter & the Wolf," with Shirim Klezmer Orchestra from Boston. Shirim collaborated with author/artist Maurice Sendak to create Pincus & the Pig. Mr. Sendak re-wrote the narration, drawing on his family memories, and Shirim re-wrote the music in a klezmer style. The piece has sophistication and humor on many levels. Narrated by David M. Lutken (2013 Helen Hayes Award for Woody Sez: The Life & Music of Woody Guthrie at Theater J).
