Description
  Noyes Fludde ( Noah's Flood ) is an opera by Benjamin Britten based on a text of an early 15th century mystery play.
   Its first performance was in Orford Church Suffolk, part of the Aldeburgh Festival, on June 18th 1958. 
   The London premiere was at Southwark Cathedral - four performances over two days in November 1958.
   This production features as part of Britten's centenary year performances.

   PinpointCreate's artistic director's vision is a combination of the Noah story and the floods
   that swept across European shores, the East coast of England and the Thames estuary. It seems fitting that 
   our journey and performances should re-trace and re-create those times.
