We will be working with Blackheath Halls Opera to perform a large-scale opera with our local communities in April 2018 but we need your help to make this project a reality.
This will be the first time we have ever worked together on a co-production and is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring together the communities we work with in Peckham and Lewisham. We want to stage 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. This work has changed the lives of thousands of people since it was written in 1958.
"A life-affirming and life-changing experience. Everyone should take part!"
The production will feature more than 200 performers including soloists, a chorus of children and adults, young musicians performing side-by-side with a professional orchestra, and a professional artistic team. An unforgettable experience!
“it’s about being part of something that’s bigger than yourself … you feel a sense of people coming together, a sense of community”
