HÄNSEL und GRETEL
An enchanting opera filled with refreshing melodies and colourful characters. A fairytale for young and old that combines the richness of a Wagnerian orchestra with the simplicity of folk songs. An exceptional collaboration with the National Circus School and the National Theatre School of Canada. Emerging artists, opera, and circus arts… it promises to be magical.
Two children, off picking strawberries, lose their way in the forest. Along the way, they come across the Dew Fairy, the Sandman, and a mouth-watering gingerbread house… not to mention a threatening cannibalistic witch.
Sung in German with English-French surtitles
Production : Atelier lyrique, National Theatre School of Canada and National Circus School
With Pierre Vachon
