Base Entertainment Asia is bringing a unique celebration of Michael Morpurgo’s beloved children’s novel War Horse to the Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands, featuring projected illustrations from acclaimed artist Rae Smith, the Base Philharmonic Orchestra and the author himself. War Horse: The Story in Concert will see the author read his poignant, emotionally-charged novel, as the Base Philharmonic Orchestra play a specially-arranged score by Adrian Sutton with songs by John Tams, inspired by the music from the National Theatre’s hit West End production with songs including audience favourites ‘Only Remembered’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’. The concert is accompanied by video artwork and projected drawings from Olivier, Tony and OBIE award-winning British designer Rae Smith re-creating her stunning illustrations from Morpurgo’s book.

Morpurgo said, “When the National Theatre of Great Britain decided about ten years ago to create a play from my story of War Horse, I could never have imagined in my wildest dreams that the play, the music and the story would travel the world, be heard and seen in concerts, on stage by millions, from China to South Africa, from Germany to Japan. It was also made into a major movie by the great Steven Spielberg. So film, play, concert, book have taken this story of war and peace, of reconciliation and friendship and hope, all over the globe.

And now our concert, with music by Adrian Sutton, songs by John Tams and drawings by Rae Smith, is to come to The Mastercard Theatres in Singapore. And I shall be there to tell the tale, along with a wonderful orchestra and singers, and the great Tim Van Eyken, the original Song Man from the National Theatre play. It will be such a pleasure, such an honour to be part of this glorious musical event that has grown out of such an iconic play.” Young Albert’s beloved horse Joey is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France where he witnesses the brutality of World War I from both sides. Even in the desolation of the trenches, Joey’s courage touches all those around him. War Horse is the powerful story of deep friendship surviving in terrible times – the tragedy of war and the beauty of peace.

Published in 1982, the book was shortlisted for the Whitbread Book Award and became a beloved bestseller. It was turned into a hit National Theatre production in 2007, and then a hugely successful Steven Spielberg film four years later. The world premiere of War Horse: The Story in Concert took place at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday 27 October 2016.
