Into the Blue

A new opera created with the students and staff of Sir Tom Finney Community High School in Preston, one of ETO’s longest standing partnerships.

Some months ago, an 11-year-old boy in Manchester managed to evade security and sneak onto a Jet2 flight to Rome, to the consternation of the police and the Manchester Airport authorities. This story is the premise for a new opera created with the students and staff of Sir Tom Finney Community High School in Preston, one of ETO’s longest standing partnerships.

The new opera, composed from scratch, will be performed on Wednesday 21st November. The narrative, lyrics and music will all be created with the students.

ETO has in the past collaborated with Sir Tom Finney School on ambitious projects in response to Tosca, La bohème, and Madam Butterfly. In 2009 a group performed on stage at the Royal Opera House, with their own new short opera called You Can Only Dream (with music by Rachel Leach) in front of 2,000 people. More recently we have devised Riding to the Erlking, and also Spirit Level in 2011. We are delighted to be returning to this exceptional school.
