A reporter sent to Venice to interview world-renowned violinist Paolo Levi is told she can ask him anything about his life and career, but on no account must she ask him the Mozart question…

The Mozart Question tells the story of this 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 prisoner 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.

Suitable for audiences from 8 years old this unique performance of the story, narrated by Michael Morpurgo and Alison Reid, is beautifully enhanced and embellished with extracts from music by Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Vivaldi. Featuring Daniel Pioro on violin and string quartet The Storyteller’s Ensemble.


Michael Morpurgo is one of Britain's best loved story makers, best known for children's books including War Horse, Kensuke's Kingdom and Private Peaceful.
