Britten: Noye's Fludde

Duration: 49:25

Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Junior Conservatoire of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Britten's Noye's Fludde.

Penny Gore introduces the live performance given last November in Glasgow's City Halls.

Britten's community opera was written for soloists and orchestra as usual, but also invites audience participation and parts for amateur performers and tuned tea cups. Can Noah persaude his wife on to the Ark before the rains set in?
