As anyone who has survived termite-swarming season in New Orleans knows, sometimes life presents a situation where the only thing you can do is to stock up on your foods, batten down your hatches, dim your lights, and avoid the Great Outdoors from a secure location until you get the all-clear. Honor the archetypal roots of the greatest natural wrath story with one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten, in his hour-long, performance of Noah’s Flood. Feel the chords of old stories retold anew as the familiar faces of Norman Robinson, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra create a space on the ark for every audience member, opera novice and opera expert alike. Lagniappe: With a “Termite-Free Or Your Money Back” guarantee, you can drop your jaw worry-free as the sounds and the sights wash over you in the intimate venue of Trinity Episcopal Church.
A chorus comprised of “animals” in the ark will include students from Benjamin Franklin Elementary, Gentilly Terrace, International School of LA, Jesuit High School, John Ehret High, Kipp Believe, Kipp Central City, Kipp McDonogh #15, Langston Hughes Middle, Lusher Charter School, McMain Senior High, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, Saint Agnes Catholic School, Saint Leo Catholic School, Saint Mary Academy, Saint Rosalie Catholic School, Trinity Episcopal School, Ursuline Academy, and many more.
