The Guggenheim has some very special events lined up this holiday season, including this weekend’s performances of Peter & the Wolf.

Isaac Mizrahi will narrate Sergei Prokofiev’s children’s classic. New York City Opera’s George Manahan will conduct the Juilliard Ensemble. A newly commissioned visual art installation by artist Rei Sato of Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd., the art production company of Takashi Murakami, will bring the story to life. The audience is invited to view the artwork following the program.

The performance and installation is presented in conjunction with Carnegie Hall’s Japan festival, JapanNYC. By the look of these kids faces, caught by Arrested Motion in a preview of Sato’s work, it will be very special indeed.

More photographs follow. Performances run December 17 through 19, 2010.
