The students put their current project on hold to help produce masks for this classic opera by Benjamin Britten. Year 8 have been working on modelling projects where they have all show excellent sculpting skills using recyclable materials such as cereal boxes, plastic bottles and yoghurt pots and were chosen to help produce props for those involved in the production at Shipston Primary School.

Each mask depicts the animals which were lead, two by two, onto the ark by Noye, or Noah which you may be more familiar with, where they wait out the storm and for the dove to return with the olive branch.

During Shipston Proms 2013, three productions of this opera will be shown to celebrate the Britten Centenary; a celebration of the life and music of composer, Benjamin Britten, 1913 – 1976.

This classic production has been a wonderful project for Shipston, bringing together a number of groups from the local community where amateur of all ages perform amongst professionals. Participants include Shipston Primary and High Schools, Shipston Proms 2013, Orchestra of the Swan, the Amateur Dramatic Society, Shipston Town Council, the Town Band, Cantamus, the Music Society, Shipston Community Arts and individual local musician.
