Inspired by the Darley Pageant by Wendy Bitton, this new opera-ballet pays homage to the unceasing energy of the River Derwent that gave power to the former cotton industry in Darley Abbey.
As part of Constella's Spin A Tale, a partnership with Derbyshire’s Darley Abbey to bring its heritage to life through a series of seven short films with newly commissioned dance, music and drama.

Spin A Tale was produced by Constella OperaBallet in collaboration with Beam, supporting Darley Abbey Day 2021 for the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site Great Place Scheme, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England.
