Musical Tales and Adventures: Peter And The Wolf & The Voyage in the New World - World Financial Center Winter Garden
January 16, 2010 -

World Financial Center, New York City's leading year-round showcase for free visual and performing arts, will present a free performance of the Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra on January 16, 2010, featuring special guest Neil Gaiman narrating Peter and the Wolf.

In a rare New York appearance, the Newbery Award winner and author of Coraline will give new life to Sergei Prokofiev's children's classic as part of "Musical Tales and Adventures: Peter And The Wolf & The Voyage in the New World," an evening of music by the Lower Manhattan-based chamber orchestra set in the World Financial Center’s glass-vaulted Winter Garden Theater.

The concert will also feature acclaimed Broadway tenor Jason Danieley in ...And Bold to Fall Withal (The Voyage in the New World), a world premiere composition by Knickerbocker founder and conductor Gary S. Fagin. Commissioned by The Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trusts, the work celebrates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's sail into New York Harbor.

The evening will also include a performance of Charles Ives' haunting The Unanswered Question and Duke Ellington's playful Up and Down, Up and Down, from Such Sweet Thunder. At the end of the one-hour concert, the audience will be invited to dance to Tchaikovsky's irresistible Waltz from Eugene Onegin, transforming the Winter Garden into a ballroom.

Now in its 22nd season, arts>World Financial Center is the East Coast's largest presenter of free, year-round performing and visual arts. Other season highlights include a weeklong celebration of Chopin's 200th birthday, with 200 hours of the composer's works performed by such pianists as NPR host Christopher O'Riley; Sounds from the Black Box, animations by South African artist William Kentridge paired with new scores by South African composer Philip Miller; and a three-week run of New York Classical Theatre's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark to be performed throughout nearly 3.5 acres of the sprawling World Financial Center.
