Hansel and Gretel
Tuesday, 26th September 2017 until Friday, 29th September 2017
Hansel and Gretel by Humperdinck presented by Pop-Up Opera.
Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company dedicated to making opera enjoyable and inviting, without losing the quality of musical performance. They aim to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making it fun, fresh and intimate.
Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all. Brother and sister Hansel and Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch.
In the dizzying excitement of the Witch’s Ride and the serene beauty of the children’s evening prayer, Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story.
Performances September 26 and 29 at 7.30pm and September 28 at 2pm
