WNO: Blaze of Glory!

Cymru, coal and choral singing.

Set in a 1950s Welsh Valley’s community, Blaze of Glory! follows the fortunes of a small group of miners who embark upon a musical escapade by reforming their male voice choir to raise spirits following a mining diaster.

Led by their heroic chorus master and supported by the strong-willed women who stand by them, the men embark on a series of adventures. They kidnap a yodeller, take park in the historic trans-Atlantic link-up with Paul Robeson, and blaze a trail to the Eisteddfodau and beyond.

Blaze of Glory! celebrates the land of song and how community spirit can triumph over adversity. Traditional Welsh harmonies blend with the a cappella sounds of the 1950s, operetta, gospel and big bang as our intrepid band of gleeman Lindy hop their way to glory. Join our men in blazers for a feel-good performance which will make your heart sing.
