Program

Jubilate Deo – Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)
Noye’s Fludde, Op. 59 - Britten

To celebrate the centennial of Benjamin Britten’s birth, Arts at The Park and Lighthouse International, a renowned organization that provides support and empowerment for individuals who are visually impaired, will present the composer’s chamber opera Noye’s Fludde (Noah’s Flood). The hour-long work is a setting of a 15th-century mystery play from the Chester Mystery Cycle and written to be performed by a cast of both professional and amateur musicians. Our production will feature the celebrated mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin (“compelling artistry” and “communicative power” – New York Times) and bass-baritone Peter Stewart alongside children and adults from the Lighthouse International Music School, The Park Avenue Christian Church and other neighborhood choirs.
