Come down to the forest with HGO…
When Mother sends out the naughty Hansel and Gretel to gather berries in the forest, the local wicked Witch somehow slips her mind. Fortunately, the care of the Sandman and the Dew Fairy and the children’s own ingenuity enable them to survive the woods, overthrow the Witch and free the children she has changed to candyfloss. Join us for a new and innovative production which takes us all down memory lane and its magic labyrinth to the world of childhood…
HGO is delighted to present Humperdinck’s wonderful fairy-tale opera Hänsel und Gretel, with our exciting young singers, tomorrow’s opera stars. And we are thrilled to have a chorus of local kids as the Candyfloss Children (an update on the original Gingerbread!)
Fully staged, directed by Jeanne Pansard-Besson with the HGO Orchestra conducted by Thomas Payne, and with fabulous designs by Michelle Bradbury, the production is in the intimate setting of Jacksons Lane Theatre. Sung in the original German, with full English surtitles.
November 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18 at 7.30pm: November 12 and 19 at 4pm.
Jacksons Lane Theatre, 269A Archway Rd, London N6 5AA
