Hansel and Gretel


takepart
More than a simple fairytale for children, Humperdinck created a wonderful, grand opera, one of the most popular pieces in opera houses all over the world. Fortunately for us, he also wrote a simpler version, which is perfect for us. It’s full of lovely, singable music, and includes plenty of challenges for those who want to develop their musical and dramatic ability.

We’ll be working our CYO magic on the score, creating our own libretto and ensuring that there are opportunities for everybody to enjoy taking part in one of opera’s most iconic works.

This production will provide opportunities for singers age 11 – 21, as well as a full production team, including stage managers, set builders, costume makers and lighting techinicians.
