Falvetti: Il Diluvio Universale (The Great Flood)

Saturday 22 February @ 7.30pm

Musica Antica Rotherhithe give Falvetti’s Il Diluvio Universale its UK premiere, and one of only a handful of performances since the 17th Century. With anthropomorphised elements competing over the right to punish humankind for the ruin of the earth, 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 – that of Noah’s Ark – that can be understood by all.

Thanks to the generosity of Mr WeeKuang Tai MNA, all ticket sales from this concert will support the work of UK-based charity Operation Noah in inspiring action on climate change.

Tickets £15, and £2 for anyone under-18: www.musicaantica.org.uk

As always, home-infused gins, wine, beer and other refreshments will be sold before the concert and during the interval in support of Holy Trinity Rotherhithe Church.
