Set in a 1950s Welsh Valleys’ 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 disaster.

Production shot

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 part 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 band as our intrepid band of gleemen Lindy Hop their way to glory. Join our men in blazers, for a feel-good performance which will make your heart sing.

Sung in English, with surtitles in Welsh and English
