Miracle Theatre's production of Tin was a cultural highlight in 2012
A drama production based on Cornwall's mining past has been chosen as one of last year's cultural highlights.
Miracle Theatre's Tin is rated among Arts Council England's top 12 for 2012.
The production, created in collaboration with English Touring Opera, was commissioned by Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, which also entered it in the Cultural Olympiad that supported the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
It brought together a cast of professional actors and singers with schools and community choirs, breathing life into Edward Bosanketh's original, historic novel.

Bill Scott, Miracle's artistic director, said: "I'm bowled over that Miracle Theatre and English Touring Opera have received this recognition from the Arts Council.
"Tin was a unique project and all 200 or more people who collaborated in making it should feel extremely proud of their achievement."
Deborah Boden, Cornish Mining World Heritage Site's coordinator added: "This is a wonderful endorsement of the quality of work enabled by our cultural programme, and demonstrates the value of collaboration between arts and heritage organisations."
Redruth-based Miracle Theatre is currently seeking investors for the final stages of its micro-budget feature film of Tin.
