Three Chester primary schools (Chester Blue Coat; Lache and Belgrave), University of Chester teacher training students and members of the community have been working with a Camerata composer, musicians and dramatist to create a brand new opera.

More than one hundred people of all ages will form the cast to create and perform a powerful story of how antisocial behaviour can have devastating and lasting consequences for others, in order to spread/communicate hard hitting messages of fire safety awareness in their communities.

Come and witness this artistic collaboration between children and professionals from the worlds of music and theatre for free on 21st November at Chester Cathedral.
