Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf presents to children a young fellow who becomes the hero of the day by disobeying the grown-ups.

Sounds like Prokofiev was asking for trouble, doesn't it?

Not so fast. Remember, Peter and the Wolf was written in the USSR in 1936, and there was a difference between disobeying Grandpa and disobeying Papa Joe. Nowadays, Peter and the Wolf is all innocence, but this wasn't always the case.
