LONDON, August 04, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The BBC Proms has joined forces with the National Theatre for the first time (in a prom) to mark the centenary of the First World War. The War Horse Prom uses the life-size Handspring puppet company puppets which feature in the War Horse musical – the international theatre hit based on the widely acclaimed and much loved novel by Michael Morpurgo.
On the stage South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company brings full-scale model horses breathing, and galloping to life — their flanks, hides and sinews built of steel, leather and aircraft cables.
This exciting and highly anticipated prom features a new suite created by Adrian Sutton from his score for the original production, as well as other music from the period with performers including the Proms Military Wives Choir directed by Gareth Malone the personable presenter of the BAFTA-award-winning TV series The Choir.
The War Horse prom takes place within the confines of the iconic Royal Albert Hall, one of London's most prestigious and versatile venues.
