This video, made by Cheltenham Festivals, is about the writing process of the libretto and score of Community Opera Across The Sky. Across The Sky is the much-anticipated finale to the 75th anniversary Music Festival. 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. Sung in English and set in the present day, it tells the touching story of a family in turmoil relocating to the area from abroad.
