The Rehearsal/El Ensayo: Peter & the Wolf

This video goes behind the scenes, a youth orchestra teams up with a student dance company to create a version of Peter and the Wolf. In these videos for the TV series Pasion por las Artes I´m finding its much more interesting to take a look at the process rather than just document a performance or a gallery show. Interestingly, and coincidentally, the 2 maestros here come from the same school of the arts in Havana, Cuba, where for the time of their education, roughly the 1970´s and 1980´s, some of the best worldwide performing artists trained.
