A group of children are rehearsing for a performance of Noye’s Fludde. As Britten’s storm builds, it escapes the score and sweeps them out to sea away from their homes, families and everything they’ve ever known. Will they find safety on the other side? A project in collaboration with the English National Opera.
Director: Lily Ash Sakula
Animators: Orkey Chang, Jorge Aguilar Rojo, Lily Ash Sakula

"Lily produced an excellently researched and beautifully moving piece of animation based on the score of Britten's opera Noye's Fludde. They were enthusiastic about the brief, quick to respond to queries and all deadlines were met. We are very happy with the finished film and look forward to using it in our outreach projects."
