Opera Queensland’s (OperaQ) new production of Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel is set to bring the magic of opera to the children of Brisbane.
In collaboration with Brisbane’s boldest contemporary theatre company shake & stir, OperaQ presents an energetic new production of the classic fairytale opera, one of the most popular ever written.
Soprano Irena Lysiuk stars as Gretel and mezzo-soprano Jessica Low as her quick-witted brother Hansel, with the mean-spirited, short-sighted witch and gentle, caring father both performed by the versatile and talented Tim Carroll.
OperaQ Artistic Director Lindy Hume said Hansel & Gretel was a contemporary reimagining of the 200-year-old fairytale. “Hansel & Gretel will transport children and adults alike to a world of magic, fairies and sweets with an enchanting story of survival and family bonds,” Ms Hume said.
Need to know - Performances are for approx 50 mins with no interval.
