Stage set for world's 'largest' musical
By Fiona Murray for BBC News Online

A musical billed as the "biggest theatrical show in the world" is about to take to the stage in Belfast.

The Ulster-Scots epic, On Eagle's Wing, has a distinctly international flavour with a 100-strong cast and crew, as well as a choir of 300 and an orchestra.

Featuring West End star Peter Corry and Scotland's Alyth McCormack, the musical traces the journey of the Scots-Irish to the US and examines their influence on American music and culture.

Northern Ireland's first large-scale musical opens
by Ruth Gillespie for The Stage

On Eagle's Wings, the first original large-scale musical to be produced in Northern Ireland, has premiered at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast after earlier plans to open in Atlanta, Georgia were cancelled due to lack of funding.

Belfast-based Straight Forward Productions had initially been promised $1.5 million from private investors in the US to produce the show, created by John Anderson for tour in America. It was due to visit Atlanta, Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale before returning to Belfast in May. However, money committed to the project failed to materialise, despite signed contracts.
