Starring specially created puppets, Chilean company Teatro y su Doble brings this famous symphonic poem by Russian composer Serguéi Prokófiev to the stage. Pedro y el lobo tells the story of Peter, a boy who disobeys his grandfather and goes into the woods, despite the danger he might face from the mighty wolf who strikes fear into everyone. With the help of his friend the bird, he manages to overpower and catch the wolf, coming to understand both his and the wolf’s place in the world.

Pedro y el lobo is the fourth creation by Teatro y su Doble - after El capote (2007), Sobre la cuerda floja (2012) and Feos (2015) - and is a Teatro a Mil Foundation coproduction, premiered as part of the Teatro Hoy season.
