Across The Sky is the much-anticipated finale to the 75th anniversary of Cheltenham Music Festival, brought to you by the residents of West Cheltenham. Sung in English and set in the present day, it tells the touching story of a family in turmoil relocating to the area. Can 8-year old Zosia’s positive nature help the rest of the family settle and start afresh? Can mum Natasza and teenager Aleks find a way to forgive each other? And will Grandad Yusef finally accept the help he needs?

This community opera is the culmination of a project Cheltenham Festivals has run in West Cheltenham over the past four years. Local people of all ages have created this piece with librettist Miranda Walker and composer Michael Betteridge. They take centre stage alongside professional musicians on Sunday 14th July in this first free performance of Across The Sky.
