Noah's FloodNo, this is not one of my posts about the effects of climate change.  Instead, I am pleased to write about a much happier subject – this weekend’s performances of Sir Benjamin Britten’s one-act children’s opera “Noah’s Flood,” which is billed as “a magical musical experience for the entire family,”

The curtain rises at 3:00pm on both Saturday, November 8th and Sunday, November 9th.  The location: Iona’s Arrigoni Center, 58 Mayflower Avenue in New Rochelle.  Tickets are available at the door – $8 for adults, $5 for seniors, $1 for children . . . or $10 will cover the whole family.  For more information, please call 914-654-8312.

What makes this performance especially neat is that it springs from a collaboration of several local arts and musical groups, including the New Rochelle Council on the Arts, the Sound Shore Chorale, Songcatchers, and Tutti Bravi Productions.  In all, more than 90 adults and children have contributed to the effort.

Enjoy the show, and get those children out of the muddy, muddy.
