The City Opera Ensemble returns this year with a performance of Engelbert Humperdinck's opera Hansel and Gretel.
This classic opera sets music to the well-known Grimm fairy tale, which traces the adventure of Hansel and Gretel. When the two children are abandoned by their mother to a nearby forest, they encounter a prodigious Gingerbread house standing in a clearing in the midst of the woods. As they begin to inspect its candy-covered walls and break off one of its irresistible looking sweets, an adventure full of dark magic and impending doom commences.
