Michael Morpurgo (War Horse, The Mozart Question), one of the UK’s greatest living authors, and Colin Matthews, regarded as one of today’s most exciting living composers, team up to present the timeless tale of The Pied Piper of Hamelin. Their story of the travelling flute player and the rich, greedy mayor is compellingly and movingly told through the eyes of a young boy – one of Hamelin’s Thief-Dogs.
Suitable for children aged 7 and over.
The Pied Piper of Hamelin is commissioned by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with the generous support of the PRS for Music Foundation.
