  1. Across the Sky - Michael Betteridge, libretto by Miranda Walker

Across the Sky is the much-anticipated finale to our 75th anniversary Festival, brought to you by the residents of West Cheltenham. Sung in English and set in the present day, it tells the touching story of a family in turmoil relocating to the area. Can 8 year old Zosia’s positive nature help the rest of the family settle and start afresh? Can mum Natasza and teenager Aleks find a way to forgive each other? And will Grandad Yusef finally accept the help he needs?

This community opera is the culmination of a project Cheltenham Festivals has run in West Cheltenham over the past four years. Local people of all ages have created this piece with librettist Miranda Walker and composer Michael Betteridge. They take centre stage alongside professional musicians including Dame Sarah Connolly, one of the UK’s foremost opera singers.

If you’re unable to attend this showing, you may be able to make the later one.
