23rd – 25th August.
A Ludwig van Beethoven roller-coaster of drama and daring, triumph and trauma, from the shadows of his father to the guiding love of his mother, from losing his hearing to the Ode to Joy. Meet Mozart, the pink wigs of Vienna and a dancing puppet all wrapped up in Wild Words’ trademark magical invention.
