A 60-minute opera at STEAM featuring 100 singers and performers

Saturday 09 - Sunday 10 July 2016
Performed by the Janice Thompson Performance Trust (JTP), the 60-minute opera was originally commissioned for the Brunel 200 South-West celebrations and features 100 singers and performers.

It tells the story of the life of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, through the eyes of the a fictitious Swindon family of Railway Workers (the ’Beddows’) who are off on the annual Railway Works ‘Trip Train’ to St Ives in Cornwall.

The young singers in the Opera are supported by an adult Community Chorus, who lead the choruses throughout the Opera and will be stationed on Choir Risers in full view of the audience. The chorus roles include the Swindon passengers on the ‘Trip’ Train, the Factory Workers, the Ghosts of Box and their Widows and also the London Men in the Chorus of ‘Bristol Men and London Men’.
