London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of the international smash hit War Horse, and you can catch a live screening of the production at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space. Hailed for its "blast of pure theatrical imagination" by Newsday, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event places the actors on stage with astonishing life-sized horse puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company. These beautiful creations act out the epic story of Joey, a farm horse sold to the cavalry in World War I, and Albert, the boy who trained and bonded with Joey on the farm, who embarks on a dangerous journey to rescue his beloved horse from behind enemy lines. Experience the beauty and drama of the original London production that won five Tony Awards in 2011 and inspired the Academy Award-nominated film by Steven Spielberg. Learn More

- "Romantic and engaging, with lush musical detail throughout." --<em>Film Comment </em>
- "Marie Feret is luminous!" --Roger Ebert, <em>Chicago Sun-Times</em>
- "Gorgeous, with candlelit shots looking like old master paintings - a fine match for music that takes your breath away." --NPR
- "Lively, fascinating ... Feminist without the arrogance of 20-20 hindsight, vividly precise in its depiction of 18th-century pre-revolutionary France, alive with exuberantly thesped personages and awash in the joy and power of music, the pic is a stunner. A treat for classical music lovers and cinephiles alike." --<em>Variety </em>
A speculative account of Maria Anna “Nannerl” Mozart (Marie Feret), five years older than Wolfgang (David Moreau) and a musical prodigy in her own right. Originally the featured performer, she has given way to Wolfgang as the main attraction, as their strict but loving father Leopold (Marc Barbe) tours his talented offspring in front of the royal courts of pre-French Revolution Europe. Approaching marriageable age and now forbidden to play the violin or compose, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed on her gender. But a friendship with the son and daughter of Louis XV offers an alternative.
