London Philharmonic Orchestra: The Pied Piper of Hamelin

Hear the Orchestra perform a new version of this familiar legend written especially for families. Michael Morpurgo (War Horse, The Mozart Question), one of the UK’s greatest living authors, and Colin Matthews, regarded as one of today’s most exciting living composers, team up to present the timeless tale of The Pied Piper of Hamelin.

Their story of the travelling flute player and the rich, greedy mayor is compellingly and movingly told through the eyes of a young boy – one of Hamelin’s Thief-Dogs.
