There are shows that have to be seen at least once in your lifetime. War Horse is definitely one of those.
On October 9, 2017 it’s at the London National Theater that War Horse was performed for the very first time.
Quickly becoming a true and undisputable success, War Horse on stage has been performed in 97 cities and 13 countries including productions in Broadway, Toronto, Berlin including a tour in the UK and Ireland, in northern America, the Netherlands, Belgium and China.
After seducing over 7 million spectators, War Horse, staged by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris is finally coming to France with 34 performances scheduled from November 29 to December 29, 2019 at La Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourt.
A word of advice: don’t forget that tickets go on sale in June 2019. You can pre-register – and it’s recommended – on warhorse-spectacle.fr
No doubt the show will seduce the French audience. For the record, War Horse has won over 25 international awards, including the Tony Award® for “Best Play” back in 2011.
Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted by Nick Stafford, War Horse tells the moving story of young Albert and his horse Joey during the first World War.
On stage, War Horse amazes thanks to the performance of the 34 actors and singers gathered in this historical and musical epic marked by emotion and poetry. The show also called in puppeteers’ talent to bring almost true-to-life horses to life, thanks to the work of South-African company Handspring Puppet Company.
At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
