Noah's arc

Musica Antica Rotherhithe are holding a concert to benefit Operation Noah this February.

The ensemble will give Falvetti’s Diluvio Universale its UK premiere. With anthropomorphised elements competing over the right to end mankind and a gleeful Grim Reaper eyeing victims, it’s comedy of the darkest kind. But its pivotal message is of hope and redemption, presented in gorgeous music, and through a tale – Noah’s Ark – that can be understood by all.

When? Saturday, 22nd February, 2020 at 7:30pm

Where? Holy Trinity Rotherhithe, SE16 5HF

More information and tickets are available here.
