    Norwich Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two are part of Norwich Theatre, the operating name of Theatre Royal (Norwich) Trust Limited. Registered Office: . By Benjamin Britten. Choral Libretto. Curlew RiverA Parable for Church Performance (Op. 71) is the first of three Church Parables by Benjamin Britten. The work is based on the Japanese Noh play Sumidagawa (Sumida River) of Juro Motomasa (), which Britten saw during a visit to Japan and the Far East in early Beyond the Noh sourceCategory: Choral Worship Cantata.

      The curlew is showing all the signs of being the next Great Auk. In Curlew Moon, Mary Colwell takes us on a mile journey on foot from the west coast of Ireland to the east coast of England, to discover what is happening to this beautiful and much-loved bird. Love and Madness A rare staging of a Handel opera tells of a knight’s misplaced passion; one of Benjamin Britten’s church parables reunites a mother with her lost : Heidi Waleson.

    Hugely inspired by the country, in his later life he persuaded Benjamin Britten to watch a noh performance, inspiring him to write the opera "Curlew River," and publisher Jonathan. Curlew River captured completely the composer's fascination with the Japanese Noh play on which it was based. The recording, produced by John Culshaw, was made in Orford Church, and the atmosphere of this unforgettable occasion is preserved.
