Noah’s Flood

  • Century II's Mary Jane Teall Theater

Benjamin Britten’s 1958 heartwarming children’s opera, “Noah’s Flood,” returns to the WGO stage after debuting to wide acclaim in June 2017. The opera tells the well-known story of Noah and the Ark, and incorporates children of all ages as the parade of animals who board the Ark. WGO regular Michael Nansel will reprise the title role.  A true community event, Noah’s Flood incorporates both adult and young singers accompanied by a full orchestra.   Noah’s Flood is an uplifting and truly memorable experience for the entire family and is appropriate for all ages.
