Legendary rocker Alice Cooper has voiced all the characters for upcoming audiobook “Peter And The Wolf In Hollywood”. The tale is based on Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev’s children’s composition “Peter And The Wolf”.
Alice is delighted with the story’s modern-day twist. “I love the fact that it’s moved on, and that Peter has come to Los Angeles to meet his grandfather, who turns out to be an old hippie!” he says. “That gives the story a fresh dynamic. And I like that he’s not in the least bit terrified by the wolf, when everybody else is freaking out.”
“Peter And The Wolf In Hollywood” is set in modern-day Los Angeles and anchored with a thrilling prequel — set off by the wolf’s escape from the local zoo — that takes Peter on a journey of robot building, a helicopter chase, and some melancholic introspection, all before he enters the forbidden meadow where he finally captures the wolf.
The result is an album and a groundbreaking app with a humorous and fresh take on Prokofiev’s much-loved classic, exploring themes of family and friendship, courage and heroism, and set against the backdrop of today’s media-saturated celebrity world.
