Hansel and Gretel

Monday, January 28, 2019

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Music by Engelbert Humperdinck
Libretto by Adelheid Wette
Sung in the original German with projected translation over the stage. 

Well, what would YOU do if neighborhood children started eating your house? Hansel and Gretel are back, and they are hungry! Unfortunately, the poor kids thought they were at the top of the food chain. Luckily for us, they get to sing about it accompanied by a splendid Wagnerian orchestra, so children and adults will both be delighted. Bring the family… and breadcrumbs.

January 26, 27 at 2 p.m.
January 25, 28 at 7:30 p.m.
