Opera Orlando is wrapping up its Opera on the Town series for the season this weekend, with a Youth Company production of Benjamin Britten’s miracle play "Noye's Fludde," which translates to "Noah’s Flood."

Opera Orlando Youth Company Director Robin Jensen stopped by the WMFE studios with three young cast members: Marie Burdette and siblings Jurrien and Elsa Mayor.

As they tell 90.7's Nicole Darden Creston, the show is an immersive re-telling of the biblical Noah’s Ark.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined WMFE in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy. When local issues have received international attention, Nicole has reported worldwide for TV news outlets such as CNN, HLN, ABC, Fox News Channel, and BBC News 24.

When she’s off duty, Nicole can often be found performing with one of Central Florida’s many theatre companies, or taking in local arts, culture and music.
