A Kneehigh and Charles Hazlewood Production:

NOYE’S FLUDDE
By Benjamin Britten
Saturday 19th July 2014.

Noye’s Fludde was designed to be performed by and for communities, in non-theatre spaces ... so where better than a huge shed in the Somerset Levels!?

Engaging and accessible, this is an opera for everyone!

This dramatic one-off production of Benjamin Britten’s spectacular 1957 opera was a collaboration between world-renowned theatre company Kneehigh and conductor Charles Hazlewood.

Members of the Philharmonia Orchestra joined opera singers and a chorus of hundreds of local school children in one of the biggest community operas ever.

God is angry, and a flood is coming. But Noah is building a boat: wide enough and deep enough not just for his family, but for a cargo of birds and beasts, both great and small. For forty days and forty nights, this chorus of unlikely shipmates endure a mighty storm, in the hope that a new world will be waiting for them on the other side.

Lyndsey Turner directs a joyous new production of Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece combining the talents of professional singers, actors and musicians with those of school children and the local community. Marking the first collaboration between Theatre Royal Stratford East and English National Opera, Noye’s Fludde speaks of courage, redemption and the promise of a new beginning.
