War Horse

Friday, Oct 19, 2012 8:00p
Boston Opera House Boston, MA

The sights and sounds of battle have seldom been rendered more vividly onstage than in this puppet-driven drama about a cavalry horse and the British youth who journeys through the trenches of World War I to find him. The National Theatre of Great Britain has put a lot of ingenious stagecraft to very powerful use, with image after blindingly sudden image of combat and its casualties -- human and animal -- that capture the chaos, futility, and waste of war. - Don Aucoin, Globe Staff

Near the end of “War Horse,’’ Joey, the magnificent chestnut steed of the title, struggles in wild desperation after he becomes enmeshed in barbed wire.

Michael Morpurgo is refreshingly frank about his initial reaction to having puppets — granted, gargantuan, galloping puppets — play the horses in the stage version of his children’s novel “War Horse.”
