Swindon aims to hit high note with opera

First published in

PEOPLE will have the chance to see the town in a new light as Swindon: The Opera takes to the stage.

The opera, which is being produced by the Janice Thompson Performance Trust who won a £60,000 Jubilee Lottery grant, covers life in Swindon from 1952 to the present day and centres around a fictional Swindon family called the Eveleys.

Composed by London-based Betty Roe MBE, the production will form part of the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations.

Swindon: The Opera is on Saturday and Sunday at the Steam Museum, with two performances on each day.
