Michael Morpurgo - The Mozart Question (For ages 8+)

7:30pm - 8:45pm - Saturday 9 June

Derby Theatre, DE1 2NF

The Mozart Question tells the story of Paolo Levi, a world-famous performer who developed his passion for music as a young child with the help of his teacher, Benjamin.

Alongside this story is that of his parents, who were both musicians too – Jewish prisoners surviving, playing music in a concentration camp during the Second World War. Treated with utmost sensitivity for a family audience, The Mozart Question is a story of friendship and family, truth and secrets – interwoven by the power of culture and music.

This unique performance of his novel, The Mozart Question, is narrated by Sir Michael Morpurgo and beautifully enhanced with extracts from music by Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Vivaldi.

Featuring Daniel Pioro on violin and string quartet The Storyteller’s Ensemble.
