Welcome to Manchester Airport, where characters from all walks of life gather to await their flight. Through a series of arias and choruses, we discover what is important to them as we are given a glimpse into what is happening in their lives and witness how they come together to support one another.

So, sit back, fasten your seatbelts and prepare for take-off. Sometimes it’s possible to go on a journey without ever having had your feet leave the ground.
