Noye's Fludde: A Co-Production with Blackheath Halls Opera
Are you aged 8-16 and love singing and acting or play an instrument?
Come and take part in Benjamin Britten’s Noye’s Fludde (Noah’s Flood), the most famous opera written for community performance! It tells the story of Noah’s family who build an ark big enough to rescue themselves and one pair of every animal on Earth, to escape an apocalyptic flood.
Come and join the children’s chorus, playing the part of all the animals rescued on the ark. Or if you play a string instrument, trumpet, recorder or percussion you can join our orchestra. You don’t need to audition to take part you just need to be enthusiastic and love performing!
You’ll get to work closely with our professional creative team including director Harry Fehr and musical director Christopher Stark and you’ll get to perform alongside renowned opera singers, professional musicians and Trinity Laban students.
Rehearsals: from Saturday 10 March leading to an intensive rehearsal period during the Easter holidays from the evening of Thursday 29 March.
We are also looking for up to 15 adults to perform alongside the children in the chorus and in the orchestra and 8 adult chaperones to sing in the chorus and look after groups of children.
Performances: Friday 6 & Saturday 7 April 2pm & 6pm | The Borough Hall, Greenwich
