INTERMISSION

Hansel and Gretel


Approximate running time 2 hrs. 10 min.

Returning for the holidays, this season's family entertainment is Richard Jones's witty production of Humperdinck's fairy-tale opera, conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, in which two children face off against a wicked witch. In a lush setting of giant chefs, suit-clad trees, and an industrial kitchen where the Witch gets what's coming to her, Aleksandra Kurzak as Gretel and Christine Rice as Hansel will lead a visual and delightful feast for our younger patrons.

Originally created for Welsh National Opera and Lyric Opera of Chicago
