Martin Ward

(1970 - )



Martin Ward is a composer of music for opera, dance and theatre, as well as for screen and the concert stage.  His narrative works explore an eclectic range of styles and genres which reflect the adventurous scope of the stories he has tackled, and many involve the merging of diverse musical elements, both acoustic and electronic.  He is the composer of Will Tuckett’s Olivier Award winning dance-theatre production of The Wind in the Willows, as well as a number of other critically-acclaimed narrative ballets, including Pinocchio and Faeries for the Royal Opera House and The Canterville Ghost for English National Ballet; and four operas including Skitterbang Island and the Edinburgh Fringe First nominated Dr Quimpugh’s Compendium of Peculiar Afflictions.

"I sat in utter awe of Martin Ward's music which is a dream. The detail within the score is phenomenal... I would happily listen to the music for the rest of time."
review for The Wind in the Willows, West End Frame, December 2013

"...a soaring collection of songs, composed by the supremely talented Martin Ward…"
