HANSEL AND GRETEL

by Engelbert Humperdinck

February 8, 11, 14 & 16, 2020


 

 

Once upon a time, two children enter the dark woods leaving a trail of bread crumbs to find their way home. The forest holds many mysteries, disembodied voices carry on the wind, eyes seem to follow them from the knots, burls, and boles in the twilight of the trees. Lost, in the middle of nowhere, they come across a gingerbread house festooned with candy and sweets, a confectionary castle of delectable delights, which holds a dark secret that threatens their very lives.

Based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel is a surreal production featuring astonishing life-sized puppets designed by Victoria’s Old Trout Puppet Workshop, a to bring the dreamlike forest, and countless whimsical visual delights to life. Enchanting and accessible, Engelbert Humperdinck’s score, which will be performed in English, is filled with drama and wonder, and is the perfect holiday entertainment to charm the whole family.

Sung in English with projected English translations.
