12/9, 12/11, 12/17 and 12/18 – The Boulder Opera Family Series presents an abridged version of Hansel and Gretel.
Based on the Brothers Grimm classic fairytale, Engelbert Humperdinck’s adaptation follows Hansel and Gretel on a journey of self-discovery during which they meet the Sandman, the Dew Fairy, and of course, the malevolent Witch. Children will cheer when Hansel and Gretel use their cunning, wits, and most importantly, their brave hearts to defeat evil and live happily ever after.
A great introduction to Opera through the well known beloved story, the opera is sung in English and lasts one hour with a Q&A at the end. Featuring Aric Vihmeister at the piano and cellist Mathieu D’Ordine. Directed by Brandon Tyler Padgett. Recommended for kids ages 3 and up.
