The animals came in two by two……

NI Opera is proud to present Benjamin Britten’s much loved children’s opera, Noye’s Fludde, in a brand new co-production with the KT Wong Foundation

The lakeside performances, in the amazing setting of Belfast Zoo, will capture the sights and sounds of the famous story of Noah, his Ark, and the flood. Produced by the same team as the company’s award-winning Tosca, the story will be brought to life by a huge chorus of local children along with professional opera singers and musicians.

With wonderful music, spectacular costumes and a beautiful outdoor set, Noye’s Fludde promises to be a once in a lifetime experience for the whole family, so bring a picnic and a rug and come and enjoy the fun!

Thanks to the generosity of the KT Wong Foundation, this production of Noye’s Fludde will also be performed in October as part of the 2012 Beijing International Music Festival.

Noye’s Fludde is a co-commission by the London 2012 Festival and the Cultural Olympiad, in partnership with Belfast Zoo, and with the support of the Britten-Pears Foundation
