A youth opera with music by Martin Ward and libretto by Phil Porter


THE STORY

Smell the salt spray! Hear the crash of the waves on the rocks! Listen to the sea shanties of the fishermen and the song of the whale…

A stranded whale brings excitement to the forgotten fishing village of Farnaway, turning it into the centre of a frenzied media circus. The bored youngsters of the village gain a new sense of purpose from the mission to save the whale, but their elders are tempted by greed to take a deadlier path. Unless Farnaway can heal its generation divide, the whale will die…
