Hansel and Gretel

"Opera with a difference"

This 2011 production of Hansel and Gretel combined fairytale with realism, bringing a classic tale into the modern world.

 

Hansel and Gretel, poor siblings struggling to survive in the poverty-stricken outskirts of Berlin, have reached rock bottom when they are sent to scavenge for food in city bins. But when a circus comes to town their lives are transformed, as they find themselves in the clutches of a sinister ringmaster, bent on luring in as many children as he can.

 

Featuring the original music of  Humperdinck, combined with a professional translation by Kit Hesketh-Harvey, this production also featured 100 young people from local Kenilworth School, making up the children's chorus. As stage director Felicity Green surmised at the time, such a bold decision to incorporate this aspect into the production is working proof of Opera Warwick's continuing aim to "make opera exciting and relevant for young people and new audiences."
