Just in time for the holidays, OperaDelaware presents Peabody Opera's production of Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck. This charming, lively opera, performed in English, is based on the popular Brothers Grimm fairy tale. It features beloved characters and delightful folk music-inspired melodies such as "Evening Benediction."
When brother and sister Hansel and Gretel get lost in a forest, they are lured into a mysterious candy house, where they must outsmart a hungry, child-eating Witch to escape being eaten. Peabody Opera Theatre performs outreach operas, cast entirely of Peabody Conservatory students, each season in order to bring enjoyable, family-friendly operas to schools and communities.
