The centre-piece to the festival is our performance of Tobias and the Angel, a community opera by Jonathan Dove and David Lan. Detailing the journey of the central character from ignorance to self-knowledge, Tobias and the Angel teems with supernatural creatures, dancing peasants and singing animals.
The allegorical tale from the Apocrypha's Book of Tobit is retold by a cast of professional opera singers, the Nottingham Cathedral Choir, Cathedral Youth Choir, Music for Everyone’s Youth Choirs, members of Streetwise Opera, and musicians from the Helix Ensemble. Among the themes explored are the nature of faith and the redemptive power of love.
