Noye's Fludde is one of Benjamin Britten's best-loved works. Premiered in 1958, the work was a pioneering community opera in which schoolchildren performed alongside professional musicians - as they still do in productions around the world.
This video, commissioned by the Britten--Pears Foundation, draws on the amazing collections at the composer's Aldeburgh home, The Red House, to tell the story behind this enduringly popular opera.
