York Festival of Ideas – Michael Morpurgo, The Mozart Question

Scroll to explore

Author Michael Morpurgo returns to York with a moving performance of his book, The Mozart Question – a remarkable story of friendship and family, truth and secrets, set against the background of the Holocaust.

Narrated by Michael and directed by Simon Reade, The Mozart Question is beautifully enhanced and embellished with extracts of music by Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Vivaldi. Featuring actress Victoria Moseley, violinist Daniel Pioro and the Storyteller’s Ensemble, the performance interweaves words and music to tell this haunting tale of survival against the odds.

Tickets will are available at yorkfestivalofideas.com.

Michael Morpurgo, OBE, is an English book author, poet, playwright, and librettist. He became the third British Children’s Laureate from 2003 to 2005.
