About our Next Concert

Fairy Tales & Legends!

Bremerton High School Performing Arts Center

Fairy Tales and Legends will be a treat for young and old.  We’ll begin our carpet ride with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade.  This tale of mystery and wonder is based on Tales of 1001 Nights.

We’ll continue our fairy tale journey with Prokofiev’s Cinderella Suite, including the dramatic Scene at Midnight when Cinderella must flee as her silken gowns turn back into rags and her horses and carriage turn back into a pumpkin with mice.

Our final destination will be Peter and the Wolf.  Join us and Peninsula Dance Theatre as we bring this story to life!

  • Arrive early to enjoy a pre-concert performance by the Bremerton Youth Jazz Ensemble, directed by Derick Polk.
  • This is a concert that children will love so we are offering a special youth ticket price of $5 for ages 18 and under.
