On the 1st February 1916, a Zeppelin bombed the Black Country causing 34 deaths. This performance aims to shed some light on this not so well known event. Its contains the harrowing tale of William and Maud Fellows. Who coincidentally share the same surname and who died together on the canal. 200 local people of every age and ability have been taking part in this premiere. Are accompanied by renowned professional singers and musicians. Rachel Leach composes the music and Tim Yealland directs. Making this opera/performance for me, personally has been exciting fun and overall a brilliant experience its been interesting to learn about the zeppelin raids and how ww1 affected the black country. Zeppelin Dreams is a unique performance planned over 6 months designed to bring February 1st 1916 and the present day together.
