2012: Learning and Participation

Announced 14 May 2013

Cycle Song (Proper Job Theatre Company and Scunthorpe Co-operative Junior Choir)

Cycle Song is an enormous, ambitious community opera with a score composed by Tim Sutton and libretto by Ian McMillan. It was driven by music and was spectacularly staged. The work is rooted in the communities of North Lincolnshire and the industrial heritage which binds them together. Inspired by a local Olympic hero and steelworker from 1920, Cycle Song shows what happens to a man committed to achievement and reaching his potential. An inspirational and educational adventure.
