War Horse Expat Choice

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.

War Horse Expat Choice

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.
