Orlando Opera Presents Hansel and Gretel
December 8 - December 9
Engelbert Humperdinck’s fairy-tale fantasy is an opera for everyone that, on Christmas Day in 1931, became the first complete Metropolitan Opera radio-broadcast performance. Its beautiful score and charming characters have made this opera a holiday tradition. The cast includes mezzo-soprano Sarah Purser as Hansel, soprano Jillian Marini as Gretel, soprano Samantha Barnes Daniel as the mother, baritone Craig Irvin as the father, and tenor Jess Muñoz as the witch. Robin Jensen conducts, and Grant Preisser directs. Come and get lost in the woods.
