World Online Premiere of SONG OF OUR HEARTLAND
All day - October 19, 2020
Online, Youtube

Following the death of Harold, a former miner and railway signalman, his wife Lilian, daughter Jacqueline and granddaughter Skylar face a stark choice. Should they move away to find jobs and new opportunities, or stay to face an uncertain future?

Forced to remain by Harold’s death and driven by her grandad’s spirit, Skylar fights to save the things which are most important to her; the school choir and the abandoned Moonlight Ballroom Theatre.

This new community opera was performed in an immersive style amongst the trains and exhibits at Locomotion, Shildon. The Chorus and Orchestra of Opera North joined forces with a newly-formed Community Chorus, drawn from the local area of south and west County Durham.

Produced by Opera North in partnership with Northern Heartlands
