A ‘beautiful reimagining’ of Michael Morpugo’s classic story at the BBC Proms

The BBC Proms commemorates the anniversary of the outbreak of First World War, collaborating for the first time with the National Theatre for a concert inspired by Michael Morpurgo’s award-winning play War Horse. Lifesize War Horse puppets joined the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor David Charles Abell, Gareth Malone and the Military Wives on stage for a performance that explored the music and stories of the Great War.
