When a young boy steals the Bell from Stephenson's Locomotive, disruption and mayhem descend. Disruption in time, disruption in the community and disruption for the Briggs Family. Time and space collapse with the unexpected return of a son from the affluent south and Stephenson himself reappears with a mission to punish the young thief and demand the return of the famous Bell. The influence of Stephenson, the challenges of modern life and the strong communities of the Tees Valley are all dramatically presented in this original opera. Using the dramatic backdrop of Darlington Railway Museum, Blaze! features Stephenson's Locomotive, the historic trains and much of the fascinating old rolling stock, maintained by the experts at Darlington Railway Preservation Society.

Music Will Todd. Lyrics Toby Satterthwaite. Producer Northern Stage. Producer Creative Partnerships Tees Valley. Director Alan Lyddiard. Design Neil Murray. Design Roni Jones.
