Overview

Chichester Marks Holocaust Memorial Day bring Sir Michael Morpurgo’s The Mozart Question to Chichester as part of their events programme commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January.

The Mozart Question tells the story of Paolo Levi, a world-famous performer who developed his passion for music as a young child, and of his parents who were both musicians too. This powerful story of friendship and family, narrated by Michael Morpurgo and Alison Reid, directed by Simon Reade, is interwoven with music by Mozart, Vivaldi and Bach, performed by violinist Daniel Pioro and The Storyteller’s Ensemble.

Alongside this story, is that of his parents who were both musicians too – Jewish prisoners surviving, playing music in a concentration camp during the Second World War. Treated with utmost sensitivity for a family audience, The Mozart Question is a story of friendship and family, truth and secrets – interwoven by the power of culture and music.

Chichester Marks Holocaust Memorial Day aim to provide education and training regarding the Holocaust and other genocides to promote human rights, religious and racial harmony, and equality and diversity to children, young people and the general public. Their programme of events in West Sussex, focused on Holocaust Memorial Day and other events throughout the year, includes films, talks, and musical or theatrical performances in Chichester Cathedral, Chichester Festival Theatre and other venues.

  • In accordance with government guidelines we do not currently require a vaccine passport or a negative test to attend.
  • E-tickets will be issued as standard. These do not have to be printed but can be shown on your smartphone or similar device for us to scan on entry. In order to reduce queueing and minimise contact, tickets will not be available for collection from the Box Office.

Due to current circumstances relating to Covid-19, our systems are set to run full (100%) fresh air only, during rehearsals and public events for a minimum of 1.5 hours before and 1.5 hours after occupation. Our supply air is drawn in via the intake ducts on the roof, passed through a two-stage filtration system removing particulates down to between 0.3µm-1.0µm (Micro millimetres). The extract system draws air upwards and out of the auditorium through ducts to the atmosphere.
