Wichita Grand Opera Presents Britten's Noah's Flood

Description: The Story: "Noah’s Flood" tells the biblical story of Noah and his ark, from hearing the voice of God foretelling of the impending disaster to his family coming together to do God’s work. A truly family oriented opera, this new production by the Wichita Grand Opera will have something for everyone. The Production: "Noah’s Flood" is widely regarded to be Benjamin Britten’s most lovable work. At its premiere in 1958, critics called the opera “a miracle of inspiration” and “extraordinarily beautiful.” Britten called for a core of professional singers and musicians to lead a large cast of student, community, and youth singers, actors, and musicians. Delightful and innovative touches abound, including striking mugs with wooden spoons to represent the sound of raindrops, and a colorful pageant of children in costume as the animals, parading two-by-two onto the ark.
