As part of Southbank Centre's centenary celebrations of Benjamin Britten's birth, The London Philharmonic Orchestra presented two performances of Noye's Fludde. Noye, his family, a cast of animals and musicians escape from the great flood that encompasses the earth in Britten's opera.
Noye's Fludde was first performed in 1958, and is based on a 15th Century Mystery Play. Britten instructed that it was to be performed in places other than theatres, and with professional and amateur performers.
Performances took place in The Clore Ballroom at Royal Festival Hall, 28 September and 12 October 2013.
