Noye’s Fludde


April 2, 2017 5:30 pm April 2, 2017 6:30 pm America/Chicago Noye’s Fludde

On Sunday, April 2 at 5:30 p.m. in the Church, St. Paul’s choirs will present a production of Benjamin Britten’s Noye’s Fludde. Noye’s Fludde is the setting of a medieval Miracle Play about Noah’s Ark. Composed in 1957 by Benjamin Britten, this charming play is a funny and dramatic opera. The cast includes a chorus of children and professional singers accompanied by a small orchestra, organ, and piano. It is a short work, but dramatically depicts the events of the Biblical story, through action, hymns, and colorfully expressive music. The Miracle Play from which it is derived was one of the twenty-four Chester Miracle Plays. In the city of Chester, England, on the Feast of Corpus Christi, twenty-four different plays were given and performed throughout the city as part of the celebrations. Noye’s Fludde was one of them.
