UAF Opera Workshop: Hansel & Gretel

April 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$5 – $12

First performed December 1893, Humperdinck’s opera Hansel and Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel) retells the well known fairy-tale.
When Hansel and Gretel find themselves lost in the forest, they stumble upon a house made of gingerbread. Unable to resist temptation, the siblings begin eating the house only to be captured by the witch who lives there. The witch puts Gretel to work in the kitchen, while fattening Hansel up to eat. Gretel manages to trick the witch and pushes her into her own oven, thus turning her into a cake, and releasing all the gingerbread children the witch had baked before.
The UAF Opera Workshop will be performing this opera under the direction of Amy Ingram, and accompanied by Dr. Dario Martin.
This opera is generously supported by Undergraduate Research & Scholarly Activity (URSA).
