The production also features several main characters which will be filled by local aspiring singers, creating an ocean of entertainment and fascination.

Based on the story of Noah’s Ark and The Great Flood, Noye’s Fludde, written by Benjamin Britten (1913-1976), is a remarkably captivating opera, which shall add to the worldwide celebration of 100th Anniversary of Britten’s birth (please see www.britten100.org for available media resources). Britten’s work consists of 200 published pieces from over 1,200, the most interesting aspect being his focus on writing for children and amateur performers.
This production is dedicated to the memory of Richard McKee (1942-2013), an accomplished opera singer, director, and former artistic director of the Syracuse Opera, who performed the part of Noye in the SO’s production of this work in 1998.
