The Mozart Question | In Concert with Michael Morpurgo
Monday, 16th January 2017
Children's laureate Michael Morpurgo and actor Alison Reid will be narrating Michael's haunting tale The Mozart Question, accompanied by violinist Daniel Pioro and The Storyteller’s Ensemble, from the Broadway Theatre in Letchworth Garden City on Sunday 7th May.
When Lesley is sent to Venice to interview world-renowned violinist Paulo Levi on his fiftieth birthday, she cannot believe her luck. She is told that she can ask him anything at all – except the Mozart question. But it is Paulo himself who decides that it is time for the truth to be told. And so follows the story of his parents as Jewish prisoners of war, forced to play Mozart violin concerti for the enemy; how they watched fellow Jews being led off to their deaths and knew that they were playing for their lives.
