MozART Group image

16.00 - 16.50h
MozART GROUP FAMILY FILM SCREENING

A unique film screening for all the family in which the music and not the words becomes the source of joy and laughter. Prepare to be amazed and moved to tears (of mirth) by the originality, musical and non-musical skill and the astonishing inventiveness shown in this series of comic sketches by the MozART Group, for whom nothing in classical music is sacred, and yet in which the music seems to emerge as all the more precious and beautiful.

String quartets will never seem the same after you have seen the Dental Ave Maria, the MoZART group’s version of Titanic and Gypsum Kings.

Film running time: 45 mins approx.
Certificate: U | Suitable for all the family

Lecture Theatre, National Maritime Museum
