The Changing Face and Sound of Classical Music:

Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie wrote the now-classic adventure tale of Peter Pan as a play for children in 1904.  He transformed it into a novel in 1911. 

A fantasy born over a hundred years ago continues to resonate today. As Pennsylvania Ballet stages Peter Pan, set to the music of Sir Edward Elgar, WRTI's Susan Lewis considers the boy who wouldn't grow up and his relevance to our lives today.
