Tin

Miracle Theatre in collaboration with English Touring Opera

A story of money, love, opera and mining, performed by Miracle Theatre in collaboration with English Touring Opera

Tin is an exciting collaboration between English Touring Opera and Miracle Theatre, one of Cornwall’s most dynamic and respected theatre companies.

Set in the winter of 1890, Tin tells the tale of a windswept group of actors who turn up in a mining town determined to give a performance of Beethoven’s Fidelio. The local tin mine is on its last legs, but when it unexpectedly yields up new treasures, the actors and townsfolk seize the opportunity to transform their lives.

In this play with music, ETO singers join professional actors from Miracle Theatre to tell a story of love and money, opera and mining. Famous Cornish baritone Ben Luxon returns to the stage in an acting role, while the score includes large sections of music from Fidelio.

This project is a continuation for ETO of its work with the Cornish community, and follows its award-winning community opera One Day Two Dawns with Hall for Cornwall in 2009.

Supported by a Youth Music award, English Touring Opera is working with a large number of young singers from eight secondary schools, as well as with Cornish male voice choirs, who will take part as the chorus in the production.

  1. I saw Tin last night and was just blown away by the production! The singing was beautiful and added so much to the performances, which were fabulous in their own right. I laughed so much I nearly cried, but was still caught up with the struggles of Captain Rundle and Rvd Longfellow - both fantastic performances. Well done Miracle and ETO!
