Rockstar Alice Cooper Personifies Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood Classical Music App

Yes. The Alice Cooper. Exactly the enchanted, soothing voice all children adore listening to as they snuggle in for a calming nightly bedtime story. Confused? Maybe it is a bit of a stretch to imagine, however, my 5-year-old son is now a new Alice Cooper fan. A new fan is not quite of the same caliber as a classic fan, possibly with time and exposure, we can nurture an interest. 

Thank you to Blue Suit Mom Media, Giants Are Small and Universal Music Group for the invitation to attend a Meet & Greet with Alice Cooper Launch Event for Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood App.

Rockstar Alice Cooper Personifies 
Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood 

Classical Music App

The incredibly charming voice behind the new musical storybook app, Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood, is none other than, rock music legend, Alice Cooper. Unique in technology as an educational, classical music appreciation app and storybook based on Prokofiev’s children’s classic, Peter and the Wolf, which is celebrating its 80th birthday, has been creatively reimagined by Doug Fitch and Edourd Getaz of Giants Are Small and Deutsche Grammophon / Universal Music Group.

Currently available in the iOS App Store as an iPad deluxe app and an iPhone app, there is also an audio album available separately on all major music platforms, Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood is music and artistry at its finest. This musical storybook has become one of our most entertaining bedtime story adventures worthy of encore performances. 

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood begins with the wolf’s escape from the local zoo. To capture the wolf, Peter must build a robot, maneuver his way through a thrilling helicopter chase, and manage some hilarious encounters with several adorably quirky animals. Will he be able to complete the mission?

All the artwork was handmade in Brooklyn, NY, by a dedicated team of artists and craftspeople. Over 18 months of designing and building using cardboard, paint, and magic markers (among other materials!) went into creating our miniature world of Hollywood. Then everything was photographed and animated to create every frame of video in the moviebook. 

Enjoy the musicality showcasing the stellar performance of an original recording of important, must-listen classical music by one of the world’s most acclaimed youth philharmonic orchestras, the National Youth Orchestra of Germany, conducted by Alexander Shelley. Music arrangements from composers featured include Prokofiev, Wagner, Schumann, Mahler, Puccini, Smetana, Elgar, Mussorgsky, Grieg, Dukas, Satie, and Zemlinsky.
