Wrexham Carnival of Words 2021: Sir Michael Morpurgo and Vicki Berwick

The Mozart Question

Michael Morpurgo‘s moving story, The Mozart Question, has now been adapted for the stage by award-winning playwright, Vicki Berwick. Join us for this exclusive Carnival of Words conversation between Vicki and Michael about the adaptation and the background to the novel itself.

The story is a moving tale of secrets and survival bound together by the power of music. And maybe their conversation might just stray into one or two other revelations as well. We’ll be letting you know how to submit questions for Michael and Vicki in due course, so watch this space!

More about The Mozart Question: When Lesley is sent to Venice to interview world-renowned violinist Paolo Levi on his fiftieth birthday, she cannot believe her luck. She is told that she can ask him anything at all – except The Mozart Question. But it is Paolo himself who decides that the time has come for the truth to be told. And so follows the story of his parents in a Jewish concentration camp, forced to play Mozart violin concerti for the enemy; how they watched fellow Jews being led off to their deaths and knew that they were playing for their lives.

As the story unfolds, the journalist begins to understand the full horror of war – and how one group of musicians survived using the only weapon they had.
